Don Juan Days
Don Juan Archiv Wien is organizing a series of workshops dedicated to exploring the theme of Don Juan, starting with the best known Don Juan work, the opera by Lorenzo Da Ponte and Wolfgang Amadeus Mozart. As the Don Juan play in eighteenth-century Vienna was habitually presented during All Souls Octave, this same week will mark the period of these twenty-first century’s workshops.
The “Don Juan Days” will assemble scholars currently working on the Don Juan theme to present their discoveries and/or new interpretations – specifically those not yet widely known. Workshop presentations may be kept informal, as the goal is enhancing the development of research projects in progress through dialogue and the exchange of ideas and knowledge.
It is our special pleasure to invite you to the inaugural meeting in this new Don Juan Archiv Wien series:
