Subject

Seduction, passion, and guilt lead to a fateful end.

The legendary womanizer Don Giovanni adventures across Europe with his resourceful servant Leporello to take advantage of women and indulge his hedonistic desires. In Seville, after abandoning his latest conquest, the playboy plans to seduce even more women, including noblewoman Donna Anna and peasant Zerlina. Unfortunately, his luck runs out.

Mozart's masterpiece returns to HGO in a stunning new production by Kasper Holten. Es Devlin's innovative, rotating set and Luke Halls's cutting-edge projections transport the audience deep into the dark mind of a serial philanderer.

Philippe Sly takes on the title role after his triumph at the Aix-en-Provence Festival this past summer. He is joined by HGO favorites Ryan McKinny as Leporello and Ailyn Pérez as Donna Anna.
