Martin Bárta will sing the title part of Don Giovanni during August 2019 at the Estates Theatre in Prague. On 1 September 2019 he is going to perform this role in the Open Air auditorium Divoka Sarka Valley in Prague with the The National Theatre Prague ensemble – a highly watched social event, each year visited by over 15 thousand people.
In the summer of 2018, the Estates Theatre will host performances of the legendary Don Giovanni production directed by Václav Kašlík, which received its premiere in 1969. The sets, designed by Josef Svoboda, inventively encompass the architectural elements of the auditorium itself, integrating the proscenium boxes as the main component of the scenery, and thus capitalising on the fact that the Estates Theatre was the venue of the world premiere of the “Opera of Operas”. The opening night, on 29 October 1787, was conducted by the composer himself.
The opera will be performed in the original Italian,
with Czech and English subtitles.
