Don Giovanni

by Wolfgang Amadeus Mozart

 

Melbourne Opera’s third production (first in the City) for 2005 was Mozart’s Don Giovanni. Collaborating again with librettist Lorenzo da Ponte, Mozart in Don Giovanni explores the dark side of traditional comedy. This is an opera of enormous power and eloquence, depicting the exploits and eventual punishment of an inveterate womanizer.

 

Starring: Joanna Cole, Margaret Haggart, Roger Howell, Antoinette Halloran, Richard Curtin with Christopher Tonkin & Phillip Calcagno as the Don.
