Don Giovanni, opera’s great anti hero, is a man without scruples. Seducer, deceiver, killer, he cares very little about the disastrous consequences of his hedonistic quest for thrills, pleasure and amusement. But then his infatuated conquests, vengeful victims and their outraged relatives join forces in a bid for justice.

Inspired by the Spanish legend of Don Juan, Mozart’s liveliest, most extreme and most romantic music draws the image of a human being consumed with the knowledge of his own limited existence, attempting to experience all of life.

Opera North’s first Don Giovanni for seven years sees the return of critically acclaimed director Alessandro Talevi and set and costume designer Madeline Boyd who worked together on the “electrifying” (Daily Telegraph) five-star production of Britten’s The Turn of the Screw in 2010.

Sung in Italian with English subtitles.

The interplay between William Dazeley's Don Giovanni and Alastair Miles's Leporello... has the fluency of a music-hall double act. Vocally, they are a fine match: Dazeley's voice sharp and hard, Miles's a little more rugged, like a rough diamond and its polished equivalent.

Very funny … Gorgeously sung.

The other star here is the diminutive Claire Wild, whose spirited Zerlina steals every scene she’s in.
