Information for Don Giovanni at The King's Head Theatre, Inner London (Opera or Operetta). Written shortly after The Marriage of Figaro. Based on the famous legend of Don Juan the master seducer from whom no woman can be considered safe. Don Giovanni pursues, seduces, rapes and murders and in the climax is pulled to hell by a stone statue of one of his victims come to life - he remains unrepentant. His servant Leporello witnesses all his masters wrongs. There is also a rarely performed opera of the same name (and story) by Giuseppe Gazzaniga which was first performed in 1786, eight months before Mozart's version. The King's Head Theatre's final opera production of 2019 is the legendary Don Giovanni... as you've never seen it before. Our new English version of Mozart's dazzling tragicomic opera blends the sensational music with a decidedly different take on the astonishing adventures of the famous libertine.
