The Royal Opera House in London’s Covent Garden and the Israel Opera have joined forces to present an exciting, technologically innovative production of Mozart’s incomparable Don Giovanni, that suave, heartless seducer of countless women who finally meets his comeuppance at the ghostly hands of the slain Commendatore whom he has insolently invited to dine with him.

Daniel Oren conducts, and performances are at the Opera House of the Tel Aviv Performing Arts Center from February 8-23.

The original director was Kasper Holten, who mounted the opera at Covent Garden.

The revival director is Australian Greg Eldridge making his Israel Opera debut, as are all but one of the lead singers. Our own Alla Vasilevitzky is singing Donna Anna together with noted Russian soprano Ekaterina Bakanova. Ireland’s Celine Byrne and Ylva Kihlberg from Sweden share Donna Elvira. Italians Roberto Lorenzi and Guido Laconsolo sing Don Giovanni’s much put-upon servant Leporello while Nahuel di Peirro and Palle Knudsen (Argentina and Sweden respectively) sing the title role.
