►Don Giovanni is a dangerously attractive aristocrat and serial seducer who leaves death and destruction in his wake. Defying both society and God in his reckless pursuit of gratification, he manages to evade the vengeful retribution of his most outraged victims, only to self-destruct in a surreal encounter with a curse-hurling stone statue.
Mozart’s musical and dramatic portrait of this complex character, and of those whose lives he stains, is Shakespearean in its understanding of human nature. Filled with wisdom and beauty, and by turns funny and terrifying, Don Giovanni is a towering creation, which we honour with a spectacular new co-production featuring state-of-the-art stage technology and design.
► All performances are at the Queen Elizabeth Theatre
► Approximate running time: 3 hours 13 minutes (including one intermission)
