Don Giovanni


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!

This production is dedicated to the memory of Amanda Holden whose English Libretto translation we used.
