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.

His servant Leporello witnesses all his masters wrongs.

Sung in Italian with English surtitles. Running time 3 hours 30 minutes. New Production. There is a Schools Matinee Performance of Don Giovanni on Tuesday 5 March.
