OK. This is a film. But it's Don Giovanni. Oh wait, it's not an opera on film. But it's a film opera. Or is it opera film? Anyway, I went to a private screening of JUAN and it was surprisingly good. Kasper Holten (current Director of Opera at the Royal Opera) directed the film. The plot is based on Don Giovanni - but with a big chunk cut out. It's in English. Christopher Maltman (singer, not librettist) translated Da Ponte's text. The film was engaging, intriguing, and not bad entertainment. If you have not seen it, give it a whirl - you might like it!
