why watch don giovanni
Sir David McVicar's production of Don Giovanni reveals the shadows that lurk beneath opera's infamous womanizer. A psychological thriller on a grand scale, this production is enhanced by the use of monumental sets that place the story in a gloomy gothic underworld that will remind you of the catacombs of Vienna. Monochromatic period costumes feature stunning embroidery accentuate the heightened drama of the opera, drawing you into the dark and desolate world of Don Giovanni's debauchery.
Don Giovanni's pleasure-seeking ways never lead him down good paths. Stealing a bride on her wedding day. Breaking into a woman’s bedroom in the dead of night. Killing her furious father. His debauchery seems to have no end. However, it is the last day of Don Giovanni's life, even though he doesn't know it yet.
When he hears a voice from beyond the grave, warning of impending punishment, Don Giovanni has no fear. Half-mocking, half-earnest, he invites the statue of the man he’s just killed to dinner. Will he come? Will there be any salvation or redemption for the degenerate Cassanova? Watch the show and find out!
