Don Jo

Don Jo

Arcola Theatre · 04 SEP - 07 SEP

A queer take on Mozart’s perennially problematic classic by Arcola Participation Queer Collective.

Overview

In a utopic (and fabulously-costumed) nightscape, somewhere beyond time, place, and stylistic integrity, Don Giovanni’s victims seek justice. But what might ‘justice’ look like, and sound like, in a queer-reimagined world?

With this performer-led re-devising of the classic opera, Arcola Participation’s Queer Collective makes its Grimeborn debut. This isn’t just another operatic re-staging; everything is up for grabs – the characters’ genders, the plot, and even the music are radically refashioned to suit the Collective’s desires and talents.

This is a new way of making opera, where a community reoccupy the classics, making a space there for underrepresented voices and their stories. Come and see the future of opera: a dizzying cocktail of forms, people, and spectacles in a refabulisation of this classic show.

Age Recommendation: 12+

Queer, devised take on Mozart’s famous seducer that's clumsily staged and needs more focus
