Ian Brown and the Oxford Sinfonia bring Don Giovanni to the Oxford Sheldonian Theatre on September 18th at 7pm.
In its first live concert in 20 months the Oxford Sinfonia is delighted to team up with Ian Brown, to present a concert performance of Mozart’s outrageous and chilling comedy Don Giovanni. Set to some of the composer’s most powerful music, this is a tale of an incorrigible young playboy who blazes a path to his own destruction in a single day.
For this performance, Ian Brown, a former player with the acclaimed Nash Ensemble, has brought together some of the UK’s brightest singers, including Jake Muffett as the Don and Garsington Opera award winner Josephine Goddard as Donna Elvira.
Since 1984 The Oxford Sinfonia has maintained its reputation as an amateur chamber orchestra of the highest standard. Through a long association with Ian Brown the orchestra has brought some of music’s best loved works to Oxford. Ian has been planning this production since long before the lockdown; he says ‘Don Giovanni is a work of great power and truly enthralling. We are opening the Sinfonia season with a real bang!’
The concert running time is 2 hours 20 mins with an Interval of around 20 mins around 20.30 and a 22:00 finish.
Standard ticket prices range from £10 - £35
