Staged by acclaimed director Francesca Zambello and conducted by legendary Mozart authority Sir Charles Mackerras, this 2008 production of Don Giovanni never shies from the work's inherent passion and spectacle. Shadows infuse the set through much of the performance (while a massive Madonna, fastened to a central urban facade, presides overhead), but the ominous chiaroscuro eventually gives way to the full force of the ensemble and an unforgettable pyrotechnic climax. The international cast includes renowned British baritone Simon Keenlyside in the title role, as well as Russian soprano Marina Poplavskaya as Donna Anna and Mexican tenor Ramon Vargas as Don Ottavio.
