Opera Australia presents

Don Giovanni
Wolfgang Amadeus Mozart


Tall, handsome and very, very dark.

Meet the ultimate Love Rat. Charming and unscrupulous, Don Giovanni has stolen kisses and broken hearts across the continent. And wouldn't you fall for a man who looks into your eyes and sings a melting Mozart serenade?

Caught in flagrante, on the run from an ex, and wanted for murder, life is getting complicated, but the Don cannot resist another quick affair. Has opera's great Casanova gone a step too far? Find out as Mozart makes the simplest of melodies reveal the most profound truths.

Joshua Bloom is Leporello, Rachelle Durkin and Kate Ladner play Donna Anna and Catherine Carby is Donna Elvira. As the Don, we welcome Hungarian Gabor Bretz, fresh from appearances in Budapest, Salzburg and La Scala, Milan, for his Australian debut.

Prepare to be seduced by a new production of this timeless tale, directed by the fearless Elke Neidhardt and conducted by Mikhail Agrest.
