Don Giovanni is a bedazzling tragicomedy showcasing the genius of Mozart and Da Ponte at the height of their powers. The Martin Lloyd-Evans production will transport this serial seducer and charismatic anti-hero into the midst of contemporary society to reveal staggering hypocrisy hidden beneath a surface of respectability.
18th July (Opera Novice Night)
This now well-established event in the Clonter calendar offers a great day out for all the family, from lucky finds amongst the car boots to hand-made craft and vintage clothes stalls, with other attractions, from good old-fashioned fair games and a fortune teller, to face-painting and birds of prey, with live music through the day, from Folk to Opera!
The opera gala consists of a variety of well loved opera arias, duets, and ensembles, followed by some musical theatre classics, in a well established operative prelude to Christmas, and is ideal for anyone who has not been to an opera before, but would like to dip their toe in the water, before committing to a full blown one. Each item is set into context by the director, so no prior knowledge necessary.
