About

Go behind the scenes of Herbert von Karajan’s legendary 1987 Salzburg Festival production of Don Giovanni! Recently remastered by the Karajan Institute, the precious collection of archival footage of this documentary offers a tantalizing glimpse into the rehearsal process for the opera, for Bach’s B Minor Mass, and for a concert of works by Wagner. Particular gems include the maestro working closely with a young Kathleen Battle, Cecilia Bartoli, Sumi Jo, and Jessye Norman and offering general advice about life and music-making. Get a better understanding of Karajan’s singular connection with his native country, the Wiener Philharmoniker, the Salzburg Festival, the musicians he challenged, and the audiences who adored him.
