Film Preview: Don Giovanni, 13 & 15 July, Cameo Cinema, Edinburgh

1 Jul

Kicking of the Cameo’s Summer Season, curated exclusively for Picturehouse Cinemas and bringing together a mix of some of the most popular operas and ballets of the past three years on the Big Screen, is Don Giovanni on Sunday 13 and Tuesday 15 July.

In one of the most enthralling and brilliantly constructed operas in the repertory, Mozart challenges all of our senses, presenting musical characterisations of piercing psychological depth. In Seville in the 1600s, Don Giovanni is an infinitely nuanced nobleman and rake who lives for his libido, arrogantly flouting the most basic social conventions.

Only Leporello, his trickster servant, adds a comic note as he helps his master make his conquests. Don Giovanni racks up a long list of enemies who seek to bring him down. In the end, however, only divine retribution can deliver justice.Recorded by the San Francisco Opera as part of the 2007 season.
