ROGUE OPERA is delighted to return to Lingfield Lodge Farm

with a NEW production of

Don Giovanni

Friday 7th & Sunday 9th June

and a special Gala Concert on Saturday 8th

The fantastic cast of 8 professional singers will be accompanied by our new Music Director, Guy Murgatroyd, on a beautiful Yamaha Clavinova piano. With an improved elevated stage, we will be transforming Jenny & Martin’s lovely 15th-century barn into a theatre for the weekend. This year we’re also excited to offer a Gala Concert to showcase some of opera’s best ‘big-hit’ arias and ensembles.

The two Don Giovanni shows will have a long interval for picnics in the gardens, with a Black-Tie dress code - so bring your picnic rugs, chairs and tables and favourite food and drink to enjoy the experience in true Glyndebourne-style!

Rogue Opera's Don Giovanni - A Modern Lothario ...

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, examining the themes of power, attraction and seduction and exploring what morality, judgement and retribution look like in today’s world.
