REVIEWS
‘The staging thrills and fills the main character with humanity... Musically much better than the London version — Véronique Gens makes a wonderful Donna Elvira. confident, strong, perfect both in her singing and acting.’ --El Pais

‘The production retains its frenzied pace, the action evolving in a bare A/tons F/ores set. This is a bleak west/and where illicit actions go undetected, the home turf of Wojtek Drabowicz’s tall, haughty Don Giovanni. This Don is less the working class anti-hem and more the yuppie hedonist with too much time and morley on his hands.’ --Plays International
