As he seduces his way across Europe, this famous anti-hero's hedonism is a challenge not only to human morality, but also to God.

Broad comedy rubs up against tense drama in Da Ponte’s libretto, and the beauty and terror of Mozart’s score are evidence of a supreme musical dramatist at the height of his powers, divinely (and perhaps diabolically) inspired. 

Alessandro Talevi’s eclectic, time-travelling production brings fresh insights to this, Mozart’s darkest, craziest, opera.
