On the road with Mozart and MoliËre in Don Juan Giovanni
By: CAROLYN CLAY [The Phoenix, 4 September 2007]
In 1665, when it made a brief appearance before being suppressed for a couple of hundred years, MoliËreís Don Juan was a ìmachine playî ó noted for its elaborate stage mechanics. In Don Juan Giovanni, a 1994 amalgamation of MoliËreís play and Mozartís Don Giovanni into a philosophic confection with incidental music of the spheres, the machine is a functioning vintage Plymouth on a road trip to nowhere ó it travels in circles, like the bike and the wheelchair that also figure in this Sisyphean sex addictsí journey. Given the source material, the car should probably be a CitroÎn or a Fiat, but whoís quibbling?
