Sexual intrigue, jealousy, wit, anger… and retribution! The new Royal Opera Season begins with Mozart’s engaging masterpiece, which follows Don Giovanni, the women he serially seduces, and the vengeance that finally catches up with him. The opera is renowned for its ever-shifting portrayals of complex characters, fast-moving action and mix of the comic and the heartfelt. A cast of international singers – both familiar and making Royal Opera debuts – under conductor Hartmut Haenchen perform the glorious arias and ensembles of this opera favourite. Filmed live in front of an audience at The Royal Opera House, Covent Garden, London; encore film screening presented by the Leo J. Welder Center for the Performing Arts.
Co-production with Israeli Opera, Gran Teatre del Liceu, Barcelona, and Houston Grand Opera
