A chat with ‘Don Giovanni’ ahead of his Mayflower Theatre performance

A trio of operas performed by the Welsh National Opera comes to Mayflower Theatre this week for the Rabble Rousers Season.

On Friday I’ll be seeing Don Giovanni, an opera based on Don Juan, the fictional libertine and legendary seducer.  It’s a classic story that’s been told in many ways since 1787. Lovers, murder and vengeance, highs and lows, comedy and tragedy. I’ve been assured it is a classic.

As you might be able to tell, opera isn’t my normal night out. But, as you know by now, I’m one for getting out of my comfort zone and challenging perceptions and stereotypes. Opera is extremely popular, and it’s about time I gave it a second chance.
