i had seen the don giovanni twice. the third one, as we totally didn’t like it, we gave the tickets to my mom and dad. awful. three times in a row, and now the 4th, with a scene that is modern and totally with a lack of pathos, and the second act boring as hell.
and the scala wants people to think that is a “daring choice” of the director? it is not new at all as the theatre is making us suffer since ages with the modern don giovanni that is totally a bore.mozart probably would have been rolling in the coffin, as we say here in italy, for the stomachache of seeing such a murder.
ok, the second act is awful anyway.and i wanted to go away . but even with old man of the loggione went home after the first act so i felt relieved. i am not the only one to think that is a waste of my money to go to see such a awful stuff…
and someone, just because the newspapers are glorifying this opera, just writes”oh great” wonderful” “amazing”. but how can you simply say that? because media said that? i am a seasonal and i get so upset reading that don giovanni is new. is NOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOTTTTTTTTTTTTTT, they totally had this don giovanni’ version for years…and even in a row. stop thinking that we are idiots. probably you journalists are. and you don’t have a seasonal at la scala, or you will totally agree with me.
