★★★★★ WhatsOnStage

A terrific show, which proves once again what a treasure ETO really is.

★★★★ Telegraph

A fine achievement, and the best UK staging of Don Giovanni for some time.

★★★★ Guardian

Is Don Giovanni a hero who defies all authority, or an amoral faker, a rapist and a murderer? To whichever conclusion you are pulled by the first, immortal bars of the score, every performance of Mozart and Da Ponte’s masterpiece is a musical and dramatic whirlwind, culminating in a supernatural intervention. It is as if the gods, or the dead, are summoned to finish the man who acknowledges no father, no law, no love, no fate.

With George von Bergen/Nicholas Lester in the title role, Matthew Stiff as Leporello, and a formidable trio of women in opposition, Lloyd Wood’s new production, conducted by Michael Rosewell, promises a heady evening.

New production, sung in English
All performances surtitled except 13 April (Everyman Theatre, Cheltenham), 27 April (Cambridge Arts Theatre) and 25 May (Exeter Northcott Theatre)

He has also conducted at the Royal Opera House, Covent Garden, for Kent Opera, ENO, and regularly at the International Festivals in Aldeburgh, Bath, Perth, Buxton and Montepulciano.

In concert Michael has conducted amongst others, the Staatsorchester, Rheinische Philharmonie, the Nationalorchester, Mannheim, the Staatsorchester, Wiesbaden, the Pforztheimer Kammerorchester, the Orchestra of Scottish Opera, the RTE Symphony Orchestra, the London Mozart Players, the BT Scottish Ensemble and the Aurora Orchestra.

Your Comments

  1. Don G. was superb last night

    Said Lesley Laws at 10:12am on 16th Mar 2016

  2. I really enjoyed Don G at Sheffield last night. Could you tell me whose translation of the libretto was sung?

    Said Peter Draper at 13:04pm on 5th Apr 2016

  3. A truly amazing performance from start to finish. It was beautifully performed in every way I absolutely loved it.

    Said Angela Leach at 09:54am on 29th Apr 2016

  4. Another beautifully crafted performance by ETO. They never appear to miss either musically or dramatically, or fall into pointless or distracting gimmickry which ruins many current opera productions from other companies.

    Amazing set and staging, a wonderful balance of voices and a convincing team approach to bringing the character's to life. The English libretto had some very amusing moments. Great production.
