Dudamel's ongoing three-year project of staging Mozart operas with sets and costumes by famed architects and designers has been the most ambitious undertaking at Disney yet. It began with a site-specific "Don Giovanni" enacted amid crumpled paper sculptures by Frank Gehry. Rodarte provided flamboyant get-ups for the singers, and Christopher Alden, the probing stage direction. The cast was first-rate. Dudamel conducted a deep "Don" from memory.
