Don Giovanni

To be seen by him is to be seduced. But is time running out for Giovanni?

He takes what he wants, without conscience or care for consequences. And now from beyond the grave, the man he murdered demands he repent. But Giovanni lives for lust and seduction. And whatever the price, he’s prepared to pay.

Don Giovanni is an exhilarating retelling of the Don Juan legend. Combining comedy and tragedy, it follows Giovanni’s final 24 hours as he lusts his way towards his dramatic demise. Filled with Mozart’s glorious music, it includes the famous ‘Catalogue’ aria detailing Giovanni’s long list of lovers.

Award-winning director Richard Jones brings his unique theatrical imagination to this new production. Critically admired Mozartian Mark Wigglesworth conducts, with Christopher Purves as Don Giovanni, Christine Rice as Elvira, and Allan Clayton as Ottavio.

A co-production with Theater Basel.
New production supported by a syndicate of donors.
