D'Arcy Greenlights New Don Juan Opera
PARIS, France (AFP) - No need for Viagra here -- it seems nothing can stop that old warhorse of a property called Don Juan from rising again.
The entire operatic world knows of the ill-fated "Don Juan Triumphant," an ambitious opera by an unknown composer that somehow found itself entwined in the mysterious legend of the Phantom of the Opera.
Now, the infamous British composer Lord Ambrose D'Arcy and his collaborator American director Jay Cobbler have announced that "the button is pushed" on their follow up to that work.
Currently titled "DJ2: F*ck You, Just Give Me Your Money and Shut Up," it is set to open at the end of next year at the Paris Opera.
The sequel will be set a year after the first installment, during which Don Juan has languished in Hell only to be rescued by Doctor Who. Adopting a new masked identity, Don Juan soon amasses a great fortune from his conquests and opens a pleasure paradise called the Electric Boogaloo. "It's something I've always imagined building myself one day," said D'Arcy.
The opera will reunite Don Juan with Aminta, originally played by opera darling Christine Daaé who will be reprising her role. The rest of the production has yet to be cast, but D'Arcy is clear on who his Don Juan is going to be, "but I can't say who."
Cobbler only comment regarding the project was, "Sexsexsexsexsexsexsexsexsex!!!"
Look for Don Juan to expose himself to the opera-going public next winter.
If anyone needs me, I'll be in my torture chamber getting acquainted with the iron tree and a sturdy length of rope.
Your Angel of Darkness,
I would just like to clarify...
