Information

A revival of the 2010 production directed by Jonathan Kent.

The name ‘Don Juan’ has become a synonym for ‘womaniser’ the world over, through the legendary 14th-century nobleman’s endless incarnations on stage and in film, literature and visual art. But in Mozart’s Don Giovanni we meet the Don on a very unusual day: a day of foiled sexual conquests, a day of murder, his last day on earth.

Not many comic operas begin with a coldblooded murder and end with the hero’s consignment to hell – but Don Giovanni swings restlessly between comedy and tragedy to startling effect. Mozart’s irresistible music follows suit, its famous highlights ranging from_ Don Giovanni_’s sparkling Champagne aria to the seductive duet ‘ Là ci darem la mano’. Jonathan Kent’s sleek and suspenseful production, last seen on the Tour in 2010, captures this duality brilliantly.

Following his success as Tarquinius in The Rape of Lucretia ( Tour 2013) baritone Duncan Rock returns to the Tour to sing Don Giovanni. He is accompanied by tenor Anthony Gregory (The Turn of the Screw, Tour 2014) who sings Don Ottavio opposite soprano Ana Maria Labin (Die Entführung aus dem Serail, Tour 2015) as Donna Anna. Polish soprano Magdalena Molendowska (La traviata, Tour 2014), sings Donna Elvira.
