Director Claus Guth's production of Mozart's da Ponte trilogy for the
Salzburg Festival reaches its sensational conclusion with his elegant,
stylish production from the "Haus für Mozart". Guth bolsters the unity of the cycle by making ingenious reference to his stagings of the first two works, Le nozze di Figaro and Don Giovanni. His widely acclaimed production of the trilogy, which began in the Mozart Year 2006, consolidates Guth's international reputation as one of the most sought-after stage directors of our time. Among his other major successes are Der fliegende Hollander in Bayreuth and Luisa Miller at the Bavarian State Opera.

Guth assembles a superb ensemble of young singers who toy with love and trust under the cynical gaze of "ringmaster" Bo Skovhus' Don Alfonso and his foxy, temperamental sidekick Despina, played by fiery young soprano Patricia Petitbon. Baritone Florian Boesch and tenor Topi Lehtipuu ideally complement their frisky partners Miah Persson and Isabel Leonard. Conductor Adam Fischer keeps the tempi brisk and the Wiener Philharmoniker on their toes in his layered reading of the score. "Uno spettacolo superbo", wrote the Corriere della Sera.
