David Marton is directing this “opera of operas” (according to Wagner). In Lyon, he staged a Capriccio by Strauss, Gluck’s Orphée And Eurydice, and a Damnation De Faust which made waves during the last season. It is thus a poet of the stage who is taking on this myth. His 2009 adaptation of Don Giovanni (Don Giovanni. Keine Pause) won him the title of Opera Director of the Year, awarded by the magazine Deutsche Bühne. We are in for an innovative vision, from this young Hungarian director, based in Berlin, who is one of the modern stage’s most interesting figures.
