Don Giovanni charms and manipulates for his own gratification. Or does he? The very embodiment of pleasure, he understands better than anyone the art of fuelling the imagination.
Laika and Muziektheater Transparant join forces for an unusual adaptation of Mozart’s Don Giovanni, a combination of music, singing, acting and… chocolate. Mozart himself described his Don Giovanni as an 'opera buffa', an entertaining opera with a light and vivacious undertone. Jan Van Outryve adapts his music for a contemporary orchestration of Hammond organ, double bass and violin.
Actors and singers play the game of seducing and being seduced in front of and among the audience. Novel dishes emerge from Don Giovanni’s kitchen creating a titillating tension between craving and surrender. The spectators tuck into the irresistible fare. Piquant, sensual, savoury and sweet.
