The streetscape, sculptures and palm trees in Seville, Spain, where the story of Don Giovanni took place, were presented concisely and rustically on stage.

The simply-furnished stage provided sufficient room for acting as well-designed by Kokkos. The audience saw serious and humorous plots and characters, experiencing the last day before Don Giovanni’s death, when he “played tricks, seduced women, quarreled with others and held a party.”

The costumes of the 18th century, designed stylishly, implied different characters’ personalities and psychologies.
