The 2014-2015 season

ETC: Don Juan… and the Stone Guest (4-9 Nov 2014)

This is the tragi-comic life of Don Juan, told as a continuous story through excerpts of the plays of 3 European dramatists:

Dom Juan by Molière, a comedy in a modern English translation by Neil Bartlett, with surtitles in French: directed by Michelle Ryan

The Stone Guest by Pushkin, a romance performed in Russian, with surtitles in English, directed by Christine Marchand

El burlador de Sevilla by Tirso de Molina, a drama performed in Spanish, with surtitles in English, directed by Diana Cardona

At the start, Don Juan commits a terrible crime, which comes back to haunt him at the end ; but not before he has seduced several women, forcefully expressed his shocking views on life, been chased into exile, shown courage in the face of danger, and generally driven his companion (called Sganarelle, Leporello, or Catalinon according to the play) to despair.
