Being a Don


An ENO Baylis community project in response to Don Giovanni

A selection of photographs from our first rehearsal of Being a Don which took place at ENO’s rehearsal studios on Saturday 8 October. Led by director Joe Austin, music director Lee Reynolds and composer John Browne with Wyn Pencarreg, Themba Mvula, Richard Scott and thirty adult male participants from across London recruited through our collaboration with the Southbank Centre.

Over seven weeks the group will collaborate to create text and music in response to ENO’s production of Don Giovanni, using the central male characters in the opera to consider contemporary perspectives on masculinity.

The project culminates in a performance at the Southbank Centre on Saturday 26 November as part of their Being a Man Festival.
