Charming but predatory, prey and pursuer, seducer of one hundred and three women in Italy alone, always triumphant, but soon to be damned. This is the enduring image of Don Giovanni, the genial anti-hero immortalised even in the depths of Hell by Mozart and Da Ponte. A perennial favourite with all young singers, it offers roles which can often be career-defining. This concert version directed by Deborah Cohen will showcase new voices and some extremely promising and talented singers identified and selected by Douglas Boyd to give them the opportunity to take roles in the 2019 Garsington Festival. Jonathan McGovern, David Ireland, Camila Titinger and Mireille Asselin may not be familiar names yet, but we will have front row seats at their dazzling Paris debut.

Coproduction Orchestre de chambre de Paris / Théâtre des Champs-Elysées,
in collaboration with Garsington Opera
