Plácido Domingo conducts Don Giovanni 230 years after its world premiere in Prague:

Maestro Plácido Domingo came up with the splendid idea of recreating the unique production of Mozart´s Don Giovanni opera in the Estates Theatre in Prague. The Stavovské divadlo is globally unique in that it is the one and only preserved and still functional venue where a world premiere of a Mozart opera took place with the composer himself conducting. This premiere was – as is generally known – of the very “Opera of Operas”, Don Giovanni. And the Estates Theatre is all the more unique owing to the fact that this opera has been performed there for centuries. The world premiere of Don Giovanni on 29 October 1787 was a tremendous success and from Prague the new opera set out on its journey to global acclaim and admiration. Mozart’s “Prague” opera is one of the most frequently performed titles at the National Theatre.
Maestro Domingo is the conductor and the artistic director of this production. The cast features extraordinary excellent singers, Plácido Domingo's Operalia competition winners together with top Czech singers chosen by Maestro Doming. The production is conceived as a replica of the legendary staging by the National Theatre Opera from 1969, which was the work of set designer Josef Svoboda and costume designer Teodor Pištěk. The project is a cooperation between the National Theatre and the Domingo-Mozart-Prague Association.
