The name ‘Don Juan’ has become a synonym for ‘womaniser’ the world over, through the legendary 14th-century nobleman’s endless incarnations on stage and in film, literature and visual art. But in Mozart’s Don Giovanni we meet the Don on a very unusual day: a day of foiled sexual conquests, a day of murder – his last day on earth.
Not many comic operas begin with a cold-blooded murder and end with the hero’s consignment to hell – but Don Giovanni swings restlessly between comedy and tragedy to startling effect. Mozart’s irresistible music follows suit, its famous highlights ranging from Don Giovanni’s sparkling Champagne aria to the seductive duet ‘ Là ci darem la mano’. Jonathan Kent’s sleek and suspenseful production, last seen on the Tour in 2010, captures this duality brilliantly.Read more
