Eleven Ways of Looking at the Commendatore

CommendatoreWhat’s in a few minutes of classical music — opera, say? Surely, there can’t be that much variety to it — after all, the vocal parts are fully written out, the orchestra just plays the music “as written”, and even the stage directions are fully spelled out, right? Well, judge for yourself — here are eleven different stagings (some from film) of Don Giovanni’s final encounter with the Commendatore, listed by the performer in the opera’s title role:

  • Thomas Allen
  • Carlos Alvarez
  • Gabriel Bacquier
  • Dietrich Fischer-Dieskau
  • Rodney Gilfry
  • Franck Leguerinel
  • Eugene Perry
  • Ruggero Raimondi
  • Samuel Ramey
  • Cesare Siepi
  • Bryn Terfel
