17th-century Venice – a city of darkness and shadows, where danger lurks in every alleyway and corruption is rife. In the centre of it all, a man with the power to seduce women at will: Don Giovanni.

Arrogant, audacious, living life from one opportunity to the next, he sets his sights on his next unsuspecting conquest. When her father intervenes, Don Giovanni flees with blood on his hands. Chased by shadows and moving inexorably towards a chilling confrontation, have his demons finally caught up with him?

Dark, vivid and bursting with life, Don Giovanni is full-blooded opera at its best, combining exquisite music, powerful orchestration, intense drama and lightly crafted comedy.

The creative team behind 2012’s The Magic Flute reunites to bring its hallmark theatricality toMozart’s extraordinary score and Lorenzo Da Ponte’s lyrics. Jacques Imbrailo, hailed by The Times as ‘the hottest young baritone on the block’ is Don Giovanni, performing alongside internationally acclaimed singers Peter Kalman and beloved Scottish soprano Lisa Milne. Rising star, Italian Speranza Scappucci conducts.
