Enjoy the full glory of Wolfgang Amadeus Mozart‘s masterpiece Don Giovanni as Kasper Holten’s acclaimed production is revived at the Royal Opera House.
First staged in 1787, Mozart’s opera tells the story of the charismatic Giovanni, an impulsive character who has taken it upon himself to travel across Europe, attempting to seduce women as he goes. With his suffering servant Leporello at his side, things take a sinister path when Giovanni commits a murder.
Getting himself into a situation that he can no longer control, he finds himself haunted by the ghost of the victim. Deciding to invite the ghost to dinner, efforts are made to make Giovanni repent and amend his wayward life, but will he give in?
With compelling arias and memorable duets, this production by Holten is an entrancing exploration of mortality and responsibility.
