Mozart's second collaboration with the mercurial librettist Lorenzo da Ponte is among the very blackest of black comedies. For its first new production of the opera in 10 years, Glyndebourne is pleased to welcome back the winning team of director Jonathan Kent and designer Paul Brown, while the music is conducted by Festival Music Director, Vladimir Jurowski. In the title role we also welcome back the great bass-baritone Gerald Finley, who has appeared in many Glyndebourne productions since joining the Chorus in 1986 -- not least in the title role of Le nozze di Figaro at the opening of the new house in 1994. He has sung Don Giovanni to worldwide acclaim in New York, London, Paris, Vienna, Rome, Budapest and Prague. Finley is joined by Luca Pisaroni (Guglielmo in the 2006 Festival's Così fan tutte) as Leporello, Kate Royal (the Governess in Jonathan Kent's 2006 staging of The Turn of the Screw) as Donna Elvira, and the young Russian soprano Anna Samuil making her UK opera debut as Donna Anna.
