Exactly before visiting opera in Dienas appendix TV Izklaide I read interview with its director Andrejs Zagars, where became clear – why on operas stage exactly is cruise ships reproduction and what’s its connection with irresponsible jilts character Don Giovanni? So the ship is like society model with many-stage decks, namely, with different society layers. But the main reason, like director says – “… it was to create effective, live, passionate, emotional performance”. Then it seems – it’s fully successful!

If we talk about Don Giovanni’s character itself, then, in my opinion, can open a discussion for couple of hours, calling as Molière work, as LorenzodaPonte libretto, as very many theatre performances and art movies.

I liked quote from article, where film director Mihaels Haneke characterized Don Giovanni’s character: “Life passion. unquenchable thirst for inaccessible. Games with high bits. Wants everything immediately. Very smart and talented, sexual aggressive, although for others he seems loyal and fascinating. He wants to subjugate. Everybody. Women, man, God, if it exist. Because In his ablaze love and life news – rapist.” You could say exact.
