Kasper Holten's boldly imaginative new production of Mozart's tragi-comic masterpiece. Accompanied by his long-suffering servant Leporello (Alex Esposito), promiscuous nobleman Don Giovanni (Mariusz Kwiecien) seduces his way across Europe. But when he goes too far and commits murder, vengeance is unleashed from beyond the grave. As one of the world's most popular and sublime operas, Mozart's 'Don Giovanni' offers plenty of scope for directors to unleash their creativity. ROH Director of Opera Kasper Holten follows his directorial debut of 'Eugene Onegin' with a production that foregrounds the theme of imagination. While retaining a light comic touch, he shifts the emphasis towards an exploration of Don Giovanni's womanising as an attempt to escape mortality. The superb cast is led by Mariusz Kwiecien - one of the world's great Don Giovannis. Alex Esposito is a fresh, vigorous Leporello, while acclaimed French soprano Veronique Gens sings Donna Elvira. Set designs are by Es Devlin of 'Les Troyens' fame.
