About the opera

Legendary playboy Don Giovanni has never met a woman he doesn’t want, or can’t have – until now.

When a seduction goes wrong and lust leads to murder, he finds himself caught in a high-stakes game of cat-and-mouse, as both his sins and his pursuers finally threaten to catch up with him.

Mozart’s psychological thriller exposes human instinct in all its messy urgency and tenderness. Breathless from its first moments to its fiery climax, the composer’s taut and dramatic score revels in contrasts. Beauty collides with violence, wit with darkness – a tangled world in which nothing and no one is quite as it seems.

Smart, subversive and just a little bit playful, Mariame Clément’s new staging gets under the skin of this classic opera and its elusive anti-hero, uncovering its tensions and deftly shifting perspectives.

This is opera to get the pulse racing, an exhilarating and unsettling drama about men, women and the human cost of a life lived outside the lines.
