Don Giovanni

Presented by State Opera of South Australia

7:30pm: 23, 26, 28, 30 May 2015

In the hedonistic pursuit of pleasure, Don Giovanni, seducer, rake, libertine and murderer, leaves behind him a trail of broken hearts, broken promises and broken lives. Accompanied by his faithful, if occasionally unwilling valet Leporello, Don Giovanni infiltrates, invades and inveigles his way into the bedrooms of Europe, with his catalogue of conquests which includes 1003 maidens in Spain alone! Such wickedness cannot stay unpunished and the demise of the Commendatore, father of one of the jilted maidens, at Don Giovanni’s hand, sets in motion the wheels of divine retribution. This is Mozart at his finest, with a classic mix of comedy and tragedy that has enthralled audiences for more than two centuries.

Adelaide-born Grant Doyle makes a triumphant return to his home town in the role of Don Giovanni. He is joined by the incomparable Douglas McNicol as Leporello, in one of his signature roles. The supporting cast comprises a veritable who’s who of local and national opera stars, with the magnificent State Opera Chorus and the Adelaide Symphony Orchestra under the expert guidance of maestro Graham Abbott.
