Comedy and melodrama at the Court

AYLESBURY Opera Group’s production of Mozart’s Don Giovanni is on its way to the Court Theatre in Tring.

Described by the composer as a comic drama, the opera has everything - exquisite music, high drama, as well as comedy, fights, seduction and a stone statue who’s invited to dinner.

AOG have assembled a strong cast including Helen Semple, a notable Micaela in a recent production of Carmen, as Donna Anna, and Nick Gee who’s previously played Figaro in the Barber of Seville and Escamillo in Carmen, as Don Giovanni’s servant Leporello.

The vile seducer as he’s described in the opera, will be played by Philip Hayes.

Geoffrey Heath will direct and AOG founder and president David Hayes will conduct.

Don Giovanni will be at the Court Theatre, Tring on Wednesday, February 16, Friday, February 17 and Saturday, February 18, 7.30pm.
