Don Giovanni is one of the timeless classics of all opera. Mozart’s music and the words of his greatest collaborator, Da Ponte, are brought to life in Francesca Zambello’s engrossing production for The Royal Opera, with rich and colourful designs by Maria Björnson. The music is memorable, dramatic and seductive: from the solo voices of the famous ‘Là ci darem la mano’ to the tempestuous ensemble as Don Giovanni’s infatuated conquests, vengeful victims and their outraged relatives join forces for retribution from the serial womanizer and murderer.
With a sensational cast including Simon Keenlyside, Marina Poplavskaya, Joyce DiDonato and Kyle Ketelsen, and acclaimed conductor Charles Mackerras interpreting Mozart’s score, this is an exceptional performance.
