Don Quichotte, Festival Theatre, Bregenz, July 2019Posted on 19 July 2019
This production by Mariame Clément of Massenet’s final opera set all five acts differently, and the overall effect was tremendous. She deals with modern concerns about male role models and masculinity, and the overall effect at the end of a stage within a stage within a stage was hugely moving. Wonderful performances by Gábor Bretz (Don Q), Anna Goryachova (Dulcinée) and David Stout (Sancho Panza) under the gloriously sensitive baton of Daniel Cohen. See my review in The Article.
