Mozart’s Don Giovanni is a story of an outsider. The Stranger who walks on a knife-edge between two worlds: Giovanni lives resolutely outside convention, treading the fine lines between vitality and humanity; between life and death; between the natural and the supernatural. He lives solely for his own pleasure and women are seduced by his desire for them. After all, to be desired is – in return – desirable. He wants women to want him. Until they do, of course. 


This operatic masterpiece grapples with the complexity of human nature; contradictions, hidden desires, and darkest fears. By exploring the conflict between immorality and amorality, and - crucially - by telling the story from the women’s perspective, this production will steer away from the opera’s traditionally male gaze, and leave the audience questioning their preconceptions. Returning to London after four and five star reviews for La Bohème in 2014, HeadFirst Productions promises provocation, dark humour and sensuality.


Sung in Italian with English surtitles and performed with a small orchestral ensemble.

Dates: 26th October - 3rd November 2017, 7.30pm (Sunday 6pm)

Tickets: £15 (£12)

“Long live women, long live wine! The substance and glory of all humanity!”
