Read more about the opera Don Giovanni

The opera chosen to tour the four cities that can take the full company of Scottish Opera is a welcome revival of Sir Thomas Allen's staging of Don Giovanni, first mounted in 2013.  In Simon Higlett's creepy and atmospheric designs, it is located firmly in 17th century Venice, and Sir Thomas will be returning to direct it himself.

Sir Thomas Allen was one of the great interpreters of Don Giovanni during his singing career, appearing all over the world in the role.  His first performances were directed by Sir Peter Hall at Glyndebourne in 1977. No doubt, over the years, he may have regarded other directors with rather less enthusiasm. Nevertheless, he was able to distil all sorts of interesting ideas from those different experiences.
