Prestigious touring season from Glyndebourne Opera House continues with Mozart’s Don Giovanni at Light House this July

Light House Cinema in Wolverhampton continues its prestigious opera season Summer at Glyndebourne with Don Giovanni on Sunday 31 July, 6pm. Glyndebourne’s production of Mozart’s Don Giovanni is a ‘white-knuckle rollercoaster ride’ through the events of the last day of the Don. Jonathan Kent’s production stars Gerald Finley as the philandering anti-hero and Luca Pisaroni as his long suffering servant Leporello. Conducted by Vladimir Jurowski also with Kate Royal, Anna Samuil and William Burden. Tickets cost £18 adult/£12.50 under 15s. For more information or to book tickets contact Box Office on 01902 716055 or visit http://www.light-house.co.uk/

Set at a time of seismic social and cultural change Jonathan Kent's urgently propulsive production offers a rollercoaster ride through the events of the Don's last day as they unfold in and around Designer Paul Brown's magical 'box of tricks' set. As an unrepentant Don Juan continues to elude his earthly pursuers, other-worldly powers are forced to intervene, leading to a fire-and-brimstone climax that ranks among Mozart's most earth-shattering

Achievements. Robin Ticciati, former Music Director of Glyndebourne on Tour and now Principal Conductor of the Scottish Chamber Orchestra, returns to conduct the period instruments of the Orchestra of the Age of Enlightenment. American baritone Lucas Meachem makes his Festival debut in the charismatic title role, with Russian coloratura soprano Albina Shagimuratova also making her Festival debut as the avenging Donna Anna.

CEO Frank Challenger said, “Summer at Glyndebourne is the only way to see the sold out festival this year and, as we are the only cinema in the region to present this prestigious production, don’t miss your opportunity to experience world class opera at a fraction of the price right here in Wolverhampton.”

Don Giovanni is a revival of the 2010 Festival production and will be shown at Light House on Sunday 31 July, 6pm. The season will conclude with The Turn of the Screw on Sunday 21 August, 6pm. Tickets cost £18 adult/£12.50 under 15s. For further info or to book tickets contact t: 01902 716055, e: info@light-house.co.uk  or visit http://www.light-house.co.uk/
