Don Giovanni

Our production of Don Giovanni by Mozart (postponed from 2020) will take place on Fri 24th and Sat 25th June (Matinée and Evening) at St Mary Magdalene Church , Canning Road, Croydon CR0 6QD and at the Minack Theatre in Cornwall on 11th-15th July 2022.

Book online here for St Mary Magdalene in Croydon (or book by telephone on 020 8657 7909) and here for the Minack Theatre in Cornwall.

This dramatic, timeless story, first performed in 1787, is a black comedy for all ages. Ranging from farce to tragedy and set to Mozart’s magnificent music, with an English translation by the late and much missed Amanda Holden.

Mozart retells the Don Juan legend, portraying the Don himself as an anarchic force of nature, respecting nothing and nobody; the archetypical womaniser whose ‘love ’em and leave ’em’ philosophy challenges society’s norms. But, actions have consequences. Everyone’s favourite scoundrel leaves behind a trail of destruction and devastation, until Fate takes a hand and supernatural judgement intervenes.

With a stunning cast/chorus and accompanied by a full orchestra, this production of Mozart’s undisputed masterpiece will be a treat not to be missed!

It will be directed by Leon Berger, designed by Jill Wilson and conducted by Jonathan Butcher.
