11 – 30 May
The serial seducer is on the loose again, in a new production from one of the most provocative minds in opera today, David McVicar.
Teddy Tahu Rhodes’ Don is mad, he’s bad, he’s dangerous but, damn him to hell, his serenades are just divine. David McVicar teases out the psychological drama of these questions in a highly anticipated new production and Australian debut from the leading opera director of his generation. And in the role he was born to sing, Teddy Tahu Rhodes’ powerful magnetism, dark-hued voice and imposing physique make being bad seem oh so good.
The Don has met his match. Don Giovanni brings together two of this country’s biggest opera stars for the first time in an Opera Australia production – Teddy Tahu Rhodes as Don Giovanni and Emma Matthews as Donna Anna.
