Don Giovanni

19 OCTOBER - 3 NOVEMBER 2018
PLAYHOUSE THEATRE, QPAC

Don Giovanni

Look into the eyes of one of opera’s most tortured souls as Don Giovanni roams the stage.

The genius of Mozart, for too long overdue in OperaQ’s repertoire, returns with his epic and timeless masterpiece Don Giovanni, conducted by Johannes Fritzsch.

British/Australian bass baritone and rising international star Duncan Rock, makes his Australian principal debut in the title role of this striking new production of one of Mozart’s best works. Some of Queensland’s finest singing actors will complete the cast of Don Giovanni. They tell the compelling tale of our iconic antihero’s final days of pleasure as he roars towards his ultimate destruction, wreaking havoc in the lives of everyone he encounters.

In Lindy Hume’s bold, visually arresting new staging the aristocratic Don Giovanni is a seductive sociopath, cajoling, funny and charming, yet dangerous and destructive. Giovanni’s descent into hell is one of theatre’s most spectacular scenes, but no work of Mozart’s is one-dimensional, so be prepared to experience a kaleidoscope of emotions across the sweep of one of opera’s most exhilarating scores.

If you saw Candide and The Barber of Seville in previous Playhouse seasons, you can begin to imagine the power of Don Giovanni at close range. If you didn’t, then this is your chance to be part of a very special operatic experience.
