Mozart: Don Giovanni

Add To Wish List + £24.99 - Item is discontinued.

"Holten has created a film that treats the opera with the respectful kind of disrespect that leaves the work's core intact. And the performances are mostly riveting." ****

Geoff Brown, The Times

"Racy, glamorous, colloquial, gripping, full of risk... certain to entice anyone with a taste for bold adventure. Given his (Kasper Holten) deep knowledge and love of opera, you know that whatever he does you're in safe hands."

Fiona Maddocks, Classical Music Critic, The Observer


The debut feature film of leading opera director Kasper Holten, DON GIOVANNI retells Mozart's classical masterpiece as a story of the modern man's escape from himself and his demons.

Juan is a famous artist and notorious playboy, thanks to his ability to become just what any woman dreams of. He turns his own life into a megalomanic work of art, playing the game of seduction like no other, driven by a manic restlessness that pushes him forward through an endless stream of conquests, betrayals, sex and eventually murder, with death lurking as the only possible outcome.

A portrayal of male sexuality in the 21st century, taken to the extreme, DON GIOVANNI reveals how the blessing of an endless appetite for life and a will to conquer the world, might in reality turn out to be the self-destruction.

A truly unique filmed version of Mozart's famous opera - an intense, vibrant and energetic take on a timeless drama, shot on location in Budapest, Hungary. Every scene and every single detail has been adapted so that it fully exploits the film media's great power to create emotional presence, making use of the full visual vocabulary of modern cinema, following such unorthodox inspirational sources as The Bourne Trilogy and Traffic, while at the same time maintaining the exceptional live experience of opera, since the actors really sing on set.

Directed by leading opera director Kasper Holten, current Director of Opera at the Royal Opera House, Covent Garden.
