Mozart: Don Giovanni on DVD
A 2-disc DVD of the 2014 Salzburg Festival Don Giovanni, featuring Anett Frisch in the fiery role of Donna Elvira, has been released on the EuroArts label and is available for purchase via Amazon.de. This new Bechtolf-directed production won critical acclaim for Anett, who’s performance was heralded as “a discovery . . . she could sing superbly.” (New Criterion)
She is joined by an extraordinary cast on this recording, including Ildebrando D’Arcangelo in the title role, Luca Pisaroni as Leporello, and Lenneke Ruiten as Donna Anna, with Maestro Christoph Eschenbach leading the Vienna Philharmonic and Chorus.
