Lent Week 5
The only rule is don't be boring..." Paris Hilton
And no-one could accuse Mozart's Don Giovanni of being boring. Legendary more like, with a reputation greater than Jack Nicholson, Russell Brand and Casanova combined. This bold, exciting new production comes to life in the dazzling lights of the city, throwing the Don headlong into the paparazzi-ridden world of modern celebrity. With a thought-provoking spin on da Ponte's heady tale join us for an evening of decadence, humour, high drama - and an infamously hellish climax.
From the production team that brought you the "totally compelling… totally convincing… best thing I had seen in Cambridge" (Varsity) opera that was Les Incas du Perou comes another theatrical extravaganza that promises to be CUOS' biggest, boldest and best show to date.
