The golden collaboration between Wolfgang Amadeus Mozart and librettist Lorenzo Da Ponte resulted in three of the most beautiful operas in the repertoire: The Marriage of Figaro, Don Giovanni and Così fan tutte.
DESCHONECOMPANIE adapts this famous trilogy for a contemporary audience, with love for the music and the libretto. The different parts of the triptych glide freely along the axes that lie between singing and performance, between Italian and Flemish, and between opera and theatre. Whether this is your first experience of the wonderful world of opera or you are about to see the performance of Don Giovanni for the umpteenth time, a fresh introduction to the familiar unknown awaits everyone.
DESCHONECOMPANIE, consisting of director Tom Goossens and pianist Wouter Deltour, has conquered Flanders with its infectious music theatre. Goossens’ firstling, Don Juan, was picked up by festivals including Theater Aan Zee and toured throughout Flanders. With this adaptation of Mozart’s Don Giovanni and Moliere’s Don Juan, this theatre-maker subsequently proved he had found a fruitful format with Così. Once again the adaptation, this time of Mozart's Così fan tutte, was highly praised and acclaimed. Driven by its success, today DESCHONECOMPANIE is also presenting the culmination of the trilogy, Le nozze. What is the common thread in all the performances? Love and its comic side effects.
