"For verve and vitality, this freshly minted production of what is possibly Mozartís finest opera scores in the high nineties.
What is special about this company Ė and Opera della Luna are one of the precious jewels of British theatre Ė is that theyíll revamp a classic work, including perhaps some topical jokes/references and a smidgeon of naughtiness, while keeping production values high and leaving the spirit of the piece intact, its stature undiminished. Itís that classic strategy of presenting vintage wine in shiny new bottles.
And so it proved here with Don Giovanni: terrific singing, an orchestra live on stage, a slue of sublime arias and dramatic scenes, a story that shifted from tragedy to comedy and back again. It was pure and dark, murky and light, quintessentially baroque."
