More about the show...

Mozart’s masterpiece is one of the world’s most performed operas for good reason. Sir Thomas Allen – whose 2019 revival of The Magic Flute was a sell-out success – returns to direct his stunning production.

In the backstreets of 17th century Venice, hunting ground of the amorous, Don Giovanni waits. A mercurial rogue who flits from irresistible charm to brute violence in a heartbeat, he is the ultimate anti-hero – and he is about to suffer the ultimate reckoning 

Music Director Stuart Stratford conducts an exciting cast that includes Roland Wood (Falstaff 2021) and Jonathan McGovern (The Telephone 2020) sharing the role of the titular anti-hero. They are joined by Hye-Youn Lee (Nixon in China 2020), Kitty Whately (Hansel and Gretel 2021), and Keel Watson

Sung in Italian with English supertitles
