Don Giovanni – Directed for stage by Jean-Yves Ruf, Conducted by Gérard Korsten
Chamber Orchestra of Europe

Mozart's masterpiece in a brand new production by Jean-Yves Ruf for the Dijon Opera!

Mozart’s second collaboration with the mercurial librettist Lorenzo da Ponte is among the very blackest of black comedies. It now stands among the best-known and most performed operas of the whole repertoire.

In this new production by Jean-Yves Ruf, will Diana Higbee (Donna Anna), Ruxandra Donose (Donna Elvira) and Camille Poul (Zerlina) all fall for the dark character of Don Giovanni (Edwin Crossley-Mercer)? will broadcast this Don Giovanni the night of its last performance in Dijon.
