Palau de les Arts Reina Sofía

The rise and fall of Don Giovanni

mentored by cabosanroque

12 - 18 December 2022

Palau de les Arts Reina Sofía


With this workshop, artists will start from one of the best-known works of the operatic repertoire to experiment with its musical and scenic limits.



The idea is to use resources from post-dramatic theatre and experimental music to explore one of Mozart's most performed works:


- All workshop participants will be on stage.

- The scenic space will be progressively constructed in view of the spectator.

- The elements that will make up the scenography will be used as sound elements.



Objectives of the workshop:


- Experimenting new ways of creating a new sound and scenographic space through destruction as the genesis of creation and metaphor.

- Reshaping ways of performing titles belonging to the world traditional repertoire, aiming the connection with new audiences.

- Re-thinking opera performances throughout the modern language applied in other performative arts.

- Embracing new perspectives of communication between the stage and audience.
