Playing the role of Don Giovanni is one of Alex’s ambitions. In the meantime he looks forward to singing the Count from Figaro next year! In this morning’s lecture, he will focus on the male relationships in Mozart’s Da Ponte operas, with an exploration of some of our favourite characters and the ones we love to hate. The symbiotic and abusive relationship between Don Giovanni and Leporello; the plotting Figaro against his master, Count Almaviva and those two perfidious lovers, Guglielmo and Ferrando.
