MURDER, SEDUCTION AND REVENGE DURING FASHION WEEK IN MILAN
Set during Fashion Week in present day Milan, Rogue Opera’s Don Giovanni follows the famous lothario - head of the brand ‘Don G’ - as he uses his power, status and wealth to charm, seduce and deceive. His assistant, Leporello, reluctantly aids his boss’s debauchery, while being increasingly drawn into this world of celebrity. Donna Anna seeks justice... Donna Elvira hopes for reform... but will Don Giovanni truly be punished for his crimes?
In Mozart and Da Ponte’s original 18th century setting, Don Giovanni’s privilege, wealth and status enable much of his behaviour. Presenting the story against a modern backdrop of fame, popularity and hashtags, Rogue Opera brings the intricacy and power of Mozart’s music to life in an engaging and intimate production. The production examines the themes of power, attraction and seduction and explores what morality, judgement and retribution look like in today’s world.
With a cast of 8 professional singers and piano; Music Direction by Guy Murgatroyd; Choreography and Direction by Michelle Buckley and Bronwen Stephens-Harding.
