Don Giovanni film for Fugard Theatre BioscopeDIVA PR
This Sunday 12 August 2012, the opera Don Giovanni, filmed at the magnificent Teatro Alla Scala, will be screened at the Fugard Theatre Bioscope.
Mozart’s ultimate bad boy meets his match in Anna Netrebko, the opera world’s “hottest female star.” Don Giovanni stars Peter Mattei as the philandering Don, with Bryn Terfel as his sidekick Leporello, and the velvety voiced Ms Netrebko as the much-abused Donna Anna. This audience favourite, for both its surprisingly modern plot and soaring melodies, is broadcast from opening night at La Scala, with Daniel Barenboim at the podium.
The World Opera and Ballet Season is presented in association with Opus Arte and Emerging Pictures, The Royal Opera House, The Royal Ballet and Bolshoi Ballet Companies and Gran Teatre del Liceu and Teatro alla Scala proudly present the new 2012 / 2013 World Opera and Ballet Season beginning this Sunday 10 June 2012.
