Light Opera of New Jersey presents “Don Giovanni”.
“Don Giovanni, updated as a celebration of Spanish sic-kitsch set in the ’90s, replete with air couches, Chanel clothes, lots of jewels and a bright white stage made of tiles with bulls, this production is a dedication to Spanish cinematographer Pedro Almodóvar and Cuban Bolero singer La Lupe. On the stage will be five neon bull sculptures, a five-piece couch covered with Piet Mondrian fabric, and lots of gazpacho. The performers will be driven by their most inner desires and fears, living their lives in a continuous state of suspension. A suspension of time…a suspension of senses…in a ’90s Spain where food, sex and pop culture are modes of expression.”
