giacomo variations

giacomoheader:

ronacher, vienna
world premiere: 05. 01. 2011

 

libretto: michael sturminger
musical director: martin haselböck
stage director: michael sturminger
costume: renate martin, andreas donhauser

 

michael sturminger and martin haselböck adapt casanova’s themes and create with their new chamber-opera play “the giacomo-variations” a dramatic and humorous reapproachment to a phenomenon.

 

we meet casanova – alternately played by hollywood star john malkovich and baritone florian boesch in various exciting encounters, and are witness to his very personal retrospection on his life in the face of his approaching death.

 

somewhere in the midst of these encounters, bursting with desire and passion for numerous women, casanova has to confront his biggest fear: to die, before discovering what he has lived for.

 

based on opera scenes by wolfgang amadeus mozart and lorenzo da ponte

orchester: orchester wiener akademie

 

with: john malkovich, florian boesch, ingeborga dapkunaite, sophie klußmann, martene grimson, andrei bondarenko, et al
