Director Lloyd Wood sets his Don Giovanni in turn-of-the-century Vienna: a city of bustling creativity, scientific discoveries and dangerous tension – the city of Freud. ETO’s Don Giovanni explores the themes of purity and death in a sequence of complex relationships between women and men, and men and men.

Don Giovanni will be conducted by ETO Music Director Michael Rosewell. Evening Standard Theatre Award-winning designer Anna Fleischle will design Don Giovanni.

Don Giovanni, a Spanish nobleman, travels through Europe seducing women, accompanied by his long-suffering servant Leporello. When his actions lead to murder, he unleashes vengeance from beyond the grave.

Is Don Giovanni a hero who defies all authority, or an amoral faker, a rapist and a murderer? To whichever conclusion you are pulled by the first, immortal bars of the score, every performance of Mozart and Da Ponte’s masterpiece is a musical and dramatic whirlwind, culminating in a supernatural intervention. It is as if the gods, or the dead, are summoned to finish the man who acknowledges no father, no law, no love, no fate.
