An opera silent movie production by Cinema Cantabile

Cinema Cantabile developed this unique format, which combines opera and cinema. This time the filmmakers deal with one of the most multi-layered oeuvres in music history: “Don Giovanni” by Wolfgang Amadeus Mozart.
Don Giovanni returns to his village and the story about passion, obsession and honour takes its course. All the characters on the screen do not talk or sing by themselves. Opera singers who are present in the cinema hall synchronize the silent lip movements.
For this performance, the pianist Richard Siedhoff will elaborate a special composition which is based on the music of Mozart’s opera.
It is up to the audience to decide whether it is the screen or the live music who is telling the truth.
