Director: Dr Nell Drew, Conductor: Ondrej Soukoup


Saturday, May 13th, 2017, 19:00: Broughton St Mary's Church, Edinburgh


Nina will sing the role of Donna Elvira


Description:

"The prison spaceship moves forward into the void. Don Giovanni's brain, all that is left of the evil lothario after a million years, is scheming. If his plan succeeds he can exude an emanation and create the havoc of old.  Don Pedro stands at the helm and a shiver runs down his spine as he suddenly worries for his daughter Donna Anna...but she is safely in stasis.  Or is she?"

 

VoiceArc return with their unique take on their third of W. A. Mozart's Da Ponte operas: Don Giovanni.  The Don and his fellow characters are brought together on a prison spaceship in a new and exciting reworking of the concept, but the music, libretto and the singing is, as always with VoiceArc, faithful to the original Mozart and Da Ponte masterpiece.  

 

Sung In Italian with English surtitles.
