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. Champagne is flowing in Sloane Square while cash and coke change hands in the back alleys of Soho. City trader Jonny slinks effortlessly through the city s dark underbelly, on the prowl for new and dangerous experiences. Desired, depraved and dragging his reluctant intern behind him, he leaves a trail of broken hearts and barristers blood in his wake. Sung in a new English translation and set in the pre-credit crunch days of the early noughties, this heady mix of sex, violence and beautiful music is a collaboration between Soho Theatre and the UK s hottest opera company, OperaUpClose, following the critically acclaimed and Olivier Award winning success of La Boh?me. In a new English version written and directed by Robin Norton-Hale
