Scottish Opera: Don Giovanni
- 16 Jun–18 Jun 2022

His Majesty's Theatre
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. Dark, atmospheric and bursting with life, this is full-blooded opera at its best, and Allen’s compelling production is the perfect partner to the drama in Mozart’s score.
Sung in Italian with English supertitles. Running time approx. 3 hours 15 minutes with the relaxed performance at 1 hour 40 minutes.
