A compulsive seducer roams the country in search of his next victim—but in Seville, his past finally catches up to him... Rediscover the story of Don Juan, his vile servant Leporello, Donna Anna, Elvira, and Zerlina: a tale written in the 17th century by Spanish poet and playwright Tirso de Molina, and set to music in the 18th by Mozart with a libretto by Lorenzo Da Ponte. This staging by Andrew Staples—who also steps into the role of Don Ottavio!—is a commentary on the state of the world in 2020, when social distancing and screen dependency dictate and dominate our daily and intimate interactions.
The cast of this dramma giocoso gathers the best of Swedish opera on one stage, accompanied by the members of the Swedish Radio Choir and Swedish Radio Symphony Orchestra and expertly conducted by the indefatigable Daniel Harding. Meet a dazzling Peter Mattei as Don Giovanni, with Malin Byström and Johanna Wallroth as Donna Elvira and Zerlina. Don't miss your chance to catch these top-notch performers in a unique staging of one of the greatest masterpieces in opera history, live from Stockholm’s Berwaldhallen!
