Opera Otago has presented opera to the Otago community for sixty years. We are proud to be the oldest continually running opera company in New Zealand.
For our first production of 2018, Opera Otago welcomes you to Mozart’s Don Giovanni.
First performed 230 years ago this year, Don Giovanni tells the story of Don Juan, the great lover. Women of all kinds are captured by his charisma. But in 2018 we don’t look at men like that in quite the same way. Opera Otago’s production of Don Giovanni 2018 sets the opera in the world of today and asks the question – is he a lover or a predator? Come and see the opera to decide for yourself. . .
Featuring Dunedin’s very own Robert Tucker as Don Giovanni, and members of the Dunedin Symphony Orchestra.
