Could Don Giovanni get any less sexy?

If you don’t believe in the angels, or at least the good, of Don Giovanni, don’t stage it

Visually this is a fascinating evening

Engrossing and exceptionally well sung
3 Feb 14 / What's on Stage
Visually spectacular, but amid uneven performances, the drama and music lack fizz
3 Feb 14 / The Guardian
Mariusz Kwiecien
Polish baritone Mariusz Kwiecien, one of a new breed of 'barihunks', is set to get hearts fluttering as the reckless seducer Don Giovanni.
