Don Giovanni as narropera (narrated opera)
Narropera is the exciting new format for presenting opera for all ages, for the opera fan and opera first-timer, alike. Invented for New Zealand in 2013, the new genre is proving popular whereever it is presented. Narropera uniquely places the story and the music on equal footing, by combining the art of public story-telling with chamber musical presentation of music from the opera (arranged for the Narropera Trio of soprano, violin and piano/narrator). The story is told over 85 minutes, into which narrative are dropped ten arias. The story is totally clear and the music thus becomes so much clearer, too. And what a phenominal story Lorenzo da Ponte's libretto is - rather worth making clear! The performers are lead by star German soprano Dorothee Jansen (Bayreuth Festival, La Scala Milan, Munich Opera, Cologne Opera etc).https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=s-4h_z72u74
