artistic project Festival di Spoleto
produced by Fondazione Teatro Coccia
in collaboration with Festival di Spoleto 60
Cartagena Festival Internacional de Música

The 60th edition of the Festival of Spoleto opens with Mozart´s Don Giovanni, which thus concludes the three-year artistic project of the Mozart / Da Ponte trilogy, carried out thanks to the collaboration with the Ravenna Festival, the Luigi Cherubini Youth Orchestra and the Teatro Coccia in Novara. 
Don Giovanni - ossia Il dissoluto punito is the second of the three Italian operas which the Austrian composer wrote upon libretto by Lorenzo Da Ponte, who drew from numerous literary sources of that time. It comes before Così fan Tutte and follows Le nozze di Figaro and was composed between March and October of 1787, when Mozart was 31 years old. This "dramma giocoso in due atti" (playful drama in two acts), where Mozart combined dramatic force and comedy, music and words, realism and fantasy in such a sublime manner, was staged for the first time at the Prague National Theater in the autumn of 1787, where it was "rapturously received" (as Mozart himself wrote to his friend von Jacquin). It has since enjoyed the privilege of a virtually uninterrupted scenic life, being considered as the opera par excellence throughout the whole nineteenth century and representing a must in the repertoire of the greatest singers and conductors of the twentieth century.
