Sort/Hvid and CPH Opera Festival are squeezing every drop of cruelty out of Mozart’s Don Giovanni in a reinterpretation of DON JUAN.

DON JUAN is dead and his funeral procession includes seduced, abandoned and raped women who have come to sing their songs about desire, destruction, horniness, love, jealousy and longing.

Director Christian Lollike and composer Mads Brauer created the prise-winning opera LEAVES. Now they have set their sights on the opera of all operas. In corporation with the set design duo Ida Grarup and David Gerth they are transforming Sort/Hvid into a haunted night club. As alcohol flows, horny ghosts appear to the sound of Mozart’s immortal music in Brauer’s reinterpretation. Get under the skin of the intoxication, the after life and the music.

DON JUAN is a co-production between Sort/Hvid and CPH Opera Festival. The performance premiers as part of the festival in august 2019.
