Jonathan Kent's Glyndebourne production of Don Giovanni features Gerald Finley and Kate Royal in this rarely heard Vienna edition of Mozart’s score.
The DVD contains exclusive bonus features including rehearsal and backstage footage, interviews with the production staff and cast as well as a glimpse into the costume, design and technical departments at Glyndebourne.
“Suavely ruthless, Finley was both steely monster and molten charmer, singing with a firmness, clarity and stylistic elegance that I can’t easily imagine surpassed…Vladimir Jurowski conducted with propulsive energy and his trademark attention to detail. He was an admirably precise and thoughtful account of the score.” - The Daily Telegraph
“Amazing production of Don Giovanni at Glyndebourne, a work of art in itself magnificent as the set is, this will also be a Don Giovanni to listen to for the orchestra. … Vladimir Jurowski has rarely sounded more inspired.” - Opera Today
