New Zealand Opera’s third production for 2014 is Mozart’s Don Giovanni, which premièred in Christchurch earlier this year.

Aidan Lang says Director Sara Brodie gave audiences a fresh and probing look at Mozart’s great masterpiece, which looks at a society in the throes of moral, and to some extent social collapse. “Audiences relished the contrast of the lively, romantic music with the raw, edgy nature of the production, and I feel sure North Islanders will have a similar reaction.

“We also have most of the original cast returning to carry on where they left off,” he says. UK baritone Mark Stone, whose Don Giovanni so seduced Christchurch audiences, will be partnered this time by NZ Opera favourite, and last year’s terrific Rigoletto, Australian Warwick Fyfe as Leporello. Fellow Australian Lisa Harper-Brown returns to sing Donna Anna along with some of New Zealand’s finest singers – Anna Leese as Donna Elvira, Jud Arthur as the Commendatore, and exciting young stars, Amelia Berry as Zerlina and Freemasons Resident Artist Robert Tucker as Masetto. Jaewoo Kim, who last sang with NZ Opera in 2006 in the title role in Faust, joins the cast as Don Ottavio.
