Don Giovanni - Let's Rock and Roll
|EMOTIONWORKS CUT OPERA|
'DON GIOVANNI - LETS ROCK and ROLL'
63 phoenix St Brunswick
SEPT 9th, 10th, 17th, 23rd and 24th all shows 4pm. Doors open 3:30pm
Emotionworks premiere production of Mozart's Don Giovanni is slashed to 90 minutes, electrified with the best classic rock songs of all time and performed at the funky, psychedelic Rubix warehouse - a hidden wonderland for Melbourne's creative subculture. This is opera fusion!
'The Don' is the typical 'bad boy' legend of the opera world. The modern-day equivalent is the rock legend, the rebel, living by the mantra 'live fast, die young'!
Played by Michael Lampard this interpretation tells the story of the final day in the life of Don Giovanni, a Rock God and famous seducer of women - where his past finally catches up with him and he descends into the depths of hell. A dark comedy about murder, seduction, rebellion, revenge and retribution - there is no redemption - 'just sex, drugs and rock and roll'!
The Don - hero or villain? Come and make up your own mind. Book your tickets to see and hear Mozart's beautiful music mixed with your favourite rock classics ranging from Led Zeppelin to Blondie. The show features great opera and contemporary voices and is accompanied by the Cut Opera House Rock Combo.
