Review Quotations

Boston Baroque gives contemporary spin to Mozart’s ‘Don Giovanni’...for the first time Boston Baroque collaborates with stage director Chuck Hudson. The staging is key in this opera. Inspired by the staging of the Prague debut of the opera, Hudson has the orchestra at the heart of the stage, with the performers moving around it. Boston Baroque uses Baroque-era instruments and the music is both unique and essential to their productions. Here, Hudson rightfully puts the orchestra front and center.

A Modern Don Giovanni For The 21st Century

I was completely mesmerized, totally charmed, and utterly disgusted by the story (that’s a good thing)…I’m thrilled that director Chuck Hudson brought a double helping of humor instead of emphasizing the tragedy of the piece (he even uses cellphones)… a vivid and multi-dimensional portrayal of the opera’s personalities and situations. Just exquisite!
