Audiences be warned: a dangerously attractive aristocrat will be in Vancouver when VO’s Don Giovanni hits the Queen Elizabeth Theatre stage on March 1st. The serial seducer will captivate audiences for only five passionate performances. Based on the captivating figure of Don Juan, Mozart’s treatment is comedic and tragic, complex — and a towering achievement of music and drama. Vancouver Opera’s innovative new production is a vibrant feast for the eyes and ears as the 18th-century Spanish world of Don Giovanni is magnificently created by video designer and visual innovator Bob Bonniol. Using state-of-the video technology, VO’s Don Giovanni will take place in an awe-inspiring three-dimensional world where the floor, the walls, and indeed the entire set is used as a projection surface.
