Don Giovanni


Role: Revival director
Location: Basel Opera
Original direction: Richard Jones

I will be directing the co-production of Don Giovanni which first performed at English National Opera earlier this year. 

Don Giovanni is an exhilarating retelling of the Don Juan legend. Combining comedy and tragedy, it follows Giovanni’s final 24 hours as he lusts his way towards his dramatic demise. Filled with Mozart’s glorious music, it includes the famous ‘Catalogue’ aria detailing Giovanni’s long list of lovers.

Award-winning director Richard Jones brings his unique theatrical imagination to this new production with set design by Paul Steinberg, costume design by Nicky Gillibrand, and lighting design by Mimi Jordan Sherin.
