South African company The Darling Music Experience make their UK debut at the Tricycle with the infamous story of Don Giovanni, re-imagined as you’ve never seen it before.
A philandering, womanising leading man. A string of scorned female lovers. A loose-lipped servant. Murder, revenge and finally retribution.
Adapted to the South Africa of today, this unique production condenses Mozart’s mesmerising tragicomedy and combines it with storytelling in modern English and Afrikaans. With just seven soloists and a piano, this company, who have previously toured rural South Africa, emphasis that experiencing opera is possible anywhere, and accessible to everyone.
‘The Darling formula is the future of taking opera to the people’
