  • Lluis Pasqual's powerful new production for the Spanish capital sets da Ponte's timeless story of sleaze and seduction into the dark world of 1940s Spain. Carlos Álvarez, in the title role, toys with the affections of Donna Anna, Zerlina and the Spanish lady Donna Elvira, before his overpowering methods finally bring his own destruction. Filmed with high definition cameras and true surround sound.

"José Bros is a luxurious Don Ottavio, with an excellent high register, perfect diction and an exquisite vocal elegance. Alvarez is the perfect Trickster of Seville. Victor Pablo Pérez, one of the most reputed conductors of the Spanish scene, manages a crystal clear work, very attentive to the beauty of Mozart's score." La Razón, Madrid

"Magnificent Maria Bayo as Donna Anna, the evolution of this soprano is spectacular. … José Bros is tenor Midas: he converts everything he touches into gold. What a delightful performance! Very rarely have we been able to listen to such a virile Don Ottavio, so different from the stereotype, with so much energy both in the stage and in the singing. Terrific." Opera Actual

"Beautiful and descriptive stage design by Ezio Frigerio … he has looked into every minimal detail… Bravissimo Carlos Álvarez, on top of his spectacular vocal power, full of harmonics, he creates a powerfully deep character, with textbook dramatic and stage determination… José Bros is a luminous vocalist, showing a confident and perfect line of singing." L'Opera

"Lluis Pasqual's staging in Franco's Spain has impressive results… Shaking off their usual banality, Mozart's characters have found a new, real-flesh humanity." L'Expresso
