Casanova Variations

A film by Michael Sturminger


Mozart meets Malkovich meets Casanova: This ultimate musical by Michael Sturminger finds Giacomo Casanova looking back on his life: He wants to discover the meaning of life, to search for freedom, knowledge and love, and to be loved once again. The Casanova Variations explores the interplay between Casanova's erotomania, John Malkovich's dramatic art and the musical and textual genius of the duo of Mozart and Da Ponte, which catapults the film into the present day.
