Director: Alexander Morfov
2 hours 40 minutes with 1 breaks.
Morfov’s stage vision begins with a dark scene, and this tone is characteristic of the whole performance, which was a great success and earned professional acknowledgement due to its captivating visual effects and excellent acting.

In his interpretation, the performance deals with the crucial decision Don Juan has to face during the last phase of his life.
