Don Giovanni

Cambridge University Opera Society

Thursday 20th February 2014

8:00 pm

1945. From the moneyed aristocracy to the working classes, freedom seems on the horizon. Zerlina and Masetto are getting married. The Commendatore’s daughter is tying the knot, too. Soon to put a spanner in these happy works, though, is the return of the wealthy libertine Don Giovanni. After years of hedonistic womanising, he goes on leave from military service for what he thinks will be the ultimate weekend of decadence and debauchery. As Don Giovanni is confronted with lovers past, present and future, his quick wit and ambition begins to get the better of him, and his web of seduction starts to unravel.
