About this project

We need your help to finish the academic and creative work not yet completed. This includes final edits of the libretto, orchestrations and arrangements along with cutting a full score and recording a backing track for small scale venues. When complete we will provide a concert version of the work in central London in October / November hopefully at the Actors Church in Covent Garden. Full details to be announced later.

This bold new production sees Mozart's greatest opera as never before. Our playboy Don Giovanni leaps out of the closet and straight into the club scene of the Eighties.

With the Don's pursuit and conquest of young men, there is a complete reversal of roles. Award winning Ranjit Bolt and David Collier are finishing a witty and crisp adaptation that has the audience laughing out loud.

Your donation will enable us to commission a full orchestra to record the instrumental score.  This will allow us to take the production forward in the future. Bringing opera to clubs and small venues to new audiences around the world. 

Please donate to help us complete this work, there are some fabulous incentives and we hope to see you at the concert performance! This will be our chance to test drive the backing track with 8 professional opera singers.

Please note that the concert performance will not be staged or set as scenes - the opera will be sung from the front.

Risks and challenges

This project is only a stepping stone in our hopes and aspirations to mount a full scale staged production with a live full orchestra in the future.

Raising awareness of the concert and project is always a challenge and word of mouth is the best way so please like our facebook page and tell your friends about us!

With your help, one day, we would like to bring the show to a stage near you!
