Don Giovanni - The Royal Opera 

When: Fri., April 18, 7 p.m. 2014
Price: $20/$15
Don Giovanni is a potent mix of lust, murder and vengeance and is set to thrill cinema audiences. Don Giovanni is cast as an artist who seduces an endless stream of women through his ability to create wonderful illusions. Yet we find that his attempt to escape his own mortality through his endless seductions is in vain. Taking on the role of the notorious seducer is Polish baritone Mariusz Kwiecien, Italian bass-baritone Alex Esposito plays Don Giovanni’s long-suffering servant Leporello, alongside Véronique Gens as Donna Elvira, Malin Bryström as Donna Anna and Elizabeth Watts as Zerlina. Set designs are by Es Devlin, renowned theatre designer, famous for her work with the London 2012 Olympics Closing Ceremony, Chimerica, Take That’s Progress Live Tour among many other rock/pop, opera, dance and stage shows and who was most recently at Covent Garden with Les Troyens. Anja Vang Kragh who has worked with the likes of Stella McCartney and Christian Dior, provides the costume designs alongside video projections by Luke Halls. This impressive creative team create an innovative visual universe which is brought to life in stunning detail and in High Definition on the big screen. The production highlights 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.
