The impulsive, charismatic Don Giovanni is a serial seducer, accompanied by his long-suffering servant Leporello—but when anger takes him too far, he unleashes a dark power beyond his control in this landmark Mozart opera.

“Don Giovanni” is the second of Mozart’s collaborations with librettist Lorenzo da Ponte (which also included “The Marriage of Figaro” and “Così fan tutte”). In it, they created a work that has beguiled and entranced in equal measure since its premiere in 1787. Perfectly situated, as no other opera, between tragedy and comedy, this potent drama combines glorious music with a seductive central character who is endlessly fascinating in his complexity.

Kasper Holten’s 2014 production for The Royal Opera casts Don Giovanni as an artist who thrives on an audience enticed by his creative gifts. The visually spectacular set by award-winning designer Es Devlin features ingenious video designs by Luke Halls which provide an insight into the characters’ thoughts and emotions—but at the production’s heart are the beauty and invention of Mozart’s dazzling score.

Sung in Italian with English subtitles. This screening is part of the Royal Opera House Live Cinema Season—the Tropic is proud to present this cultural series throughout the end of 2019 and into 2020.
