The innovative Budapest Festival Orchestra and music director Iván Fischer return to Mostly Mozart with their acclaimed production of Don Giovanni, a standout of the 2011 festival selling out all of its performances. With minimal sets, the powerful staging was conceived by BFO founder Fischer, who will direct and conduct the presentation. Baritone Christopher Maltman takes on the role of the lothario Don Giovanni, while soprano Laura Aikin reprises the part of Donna Anna, one of his conquests. Tenor Zoltán Megyesi, soprano Lucy Crowe, baritone José Fardilha, and bass Kristinn Sigmundsson round out the stellar cast.
