Don Giovanni at the ENO was panned by the critics: "It's been a while since I saw so much garbage on a stage" said the Independent. I went to see it last night with Fiona and we thoroughly enjoyed ourselves. Yes, the production was violent, modern and vulgar. No breeches and lace here. But it didn't overwhelm the music or obscure the story. Maybe it helped that I am new to Don Giovanni - my curiosity is roused now and I'd love to see it again in a more traditional production.
