Mozart’s masterpiece is one of the world’s most performed operas for good reason. Sir Thomas Allen – whose 2019 revival of The Magic Flute was a sell-out success – returns to direct his stunning production, with a special performance on 5 June marking Scottish Opera's 60th Birthday.
In the backstreets of 17th-century Venice, hunting ground of the amorous, Don Giovanni waits. A mercurial rogue who flits from irresistible charm to brute violence in a heartbeat, he is the ultimate anti-hero – and he is about to suffer the ultimate reckoning.
'Richly sumptuous and vividly told'
— The Scotsman
Dark, atmospheric and bursting with life, this is full-blooded opera at its best. Allen’s compelling production is the perfect partner to the drama in Mozart’s score.
The exciting cast includes Roland Wood (Falstaff 2021) and name-to-watch Jonathan McGovern (A Midsummer Night's Dream 2022) sharing the title role. The three women who join forces against the Don are sung by Hye-Youn Lee (Nixon in China 2020), Kitty Whately (Hansel and Gretel 2021), and 2021-23 Emerging Artist Lea Shaw (A Midsummer Night's Dream 2021).
'A rattling good yarn.' ★★★★ The Times
'Splendidly staged and sung. ' ★★★★ The Telegraph
