The impulsive and charismatic Don Giovanni travels through 18th century Spain seducing women, accompanied by his long-suffering servant Leporello. But when Don Giovanni commits murder, he unleashes a dark power beyond his control. Don Giovanni continues to seduce and betray with his usual rapacity. Haunted by the ghost of the murdered man, he decides to invite him to dinner. The ghost urges him to repent – but Don Giovanni will not.

Mozart’s classic opera Don Giovanni - first staged in 1787 - offers boundless scope for directors. Well-known New Zealand film director Alex Galvin’s first opera is rich in both colourful comedy and exhilarating drama.

At the heart of the production are the beauty and invention of Mozart’s dazzling score, which ranges from gorgeous arias and dramatic duets to the brilliant layering of dance melodies that bring Act I to a virtuoso close.

Sung in English with an esteemed chamber orchestra, this production of Don Giovanni will be like no other seen in New Zealand.

Directed by Alex Galvin and conducted by Simon Romanos.
