About the Show Less...

Mozart's famous title character loves, charms, lies and fights his way through life on his way to final retribution. Read More >

Pursued by his victims and their outraged relatives, the serial seducer Don Giovanni is intent on yet further sexual conquests. But his luck eventually runs out when the statue of a man he murdered invites itself for dinner.

Beautiful arias, disarming duets and dramatic ensembles characterise the range of Mozart’s score, and irony and wit bring a sharp brilliance to a drama with serious undertones.

Francesca Zambello’s production teems with energy as Don Giovanni loves, charms, lies and fights his way through life on his way to final retribution. The flames of Hell take truly tangible form in a production with the heat turned right up in the music, the drama and on stage!

Don Giovanni is performed as part of the Royal Opera House’s Olympic Programme, which includes all three of the operas created by Mozart and librettist Lorenzo da Ponte.

Don Giovanni is sung in Italian with English surtitles.
