After having created a first-class Don Giovanni in a corona-appropriate version with the prestigious Graz Styriarte Festival this summer, Damien Gastl joined the outstanding Opéra national du Rhin opera-studio in Strasbourg, his native city. He meanwhile made his debut there in Samson et Dalila and will soon perform the role of the father in Hänsel und Gretel. Opening-night will be on December 12, 2020.
He was supposed to make his role-debut as Don Giovanni within a staged production of the renowned Styriarte Festival this summer. The staged version can after all unfortunately not take place; Damien Gastl, nevertheless, finally appears there as Don Giovanni, now joining the concert-series under the title Don Giovanni in distress (Don Giovanni in Nöten).
