Kasper Holten’s visually striking production accentuates the beauty and invention of Mozart’s dazzling tragicomedy. Kasper Holten’s 2014 production of Don Giovanni for the Royal Opera offers a glimpse inside the mind of one of opera’s most notorious seducers. With a spectacular revolving set by award-winning designer Es Devlin, ingenious video projections by Luke Halls, and an ‘ideal cast on world beating form’ (The Independent), this staging brings Mozart’s dazzling score to life, in all its wit, glamour, and darkness.
'…A stunning evening… with Roberto Tagliavini’s Leporello and Erwin Schrott’s Giovanni we get a definitive pairing.' (The Independent ★★★★)
'… this is one of the most musically magnificent productions of this work I’ve ever seen,' (The Independent ★★★★)
'The Royal Opera’s Mozart staging is even better this time around… Erwin Schrott’s magnificently sung assumption of the title role is one asset… Malin Byström is superbly credible and vocally majestic… The show is conducted solidly...' (The Times ★★★★)
'Erwin Schrott delivers as the would-be seducer…' (The Arts Desk)
'An unforgettable performance by Erwin Schrott…' (The Stage ★★★★)
