Opera North – Mozart’s Don Giovanni
Kathryn returns to Opera North in February 2018 to perform in the role of Zerlina in their production of Mozart’s Don Giovanni. The production is directed by Alessandro Talevi and Conducted by Christoph Alstaedt. Performances will take place at the Leeds Grand Theatre, The Lowry Manchester, Theatre Royal Nottingham and Theatre Royal Newcastle.
“Be tantalised by this lively production as Don Giovanni, opera’s most compelling antihero, goes on a quest for hedonistic thrills. As he seduces his way across Europe, bedding 1003 women in Spain alone, the unrepentant Don Giovanni resorts to despicable violence until his infatuated conquests and vengeful victims join forces in a bid for justice. A fast-unfolding, urgent plot, mixes broad comedy with tense drama. Mozart’s sublimely beautiful, spine-tingling music stands in stark contrast with the cruelty of his deeply ambiguous Lothario. Alessandro Talevi’s eclectic, time-travelling production brings fresh insights to this, Mozart’s darkest, craziest, opera”
