Don Giovanni Deluxe Edition in February

Second Sight have announced the UK DVD release of Don Giovanni on 18th February 2008 priced at £24.99. Based on the Don Juan myth, Mozart’s world famous 1787 opera is translated to screen by respected stage and screen director Joseph Losey. It stars the cream of the opera world, including Italian opera legend Ruggero Raimondi (La Boheme. Carmen) as the eponymous Don Giovanni, a womaniser, murderer and rake of the highest order, and Dame Kiri Te Kanawa (Otello, Die Fledermaus), as the lovelorn Donna Elvira.

Don Giovanni’s nefarious carousing is brought to a halt when the ghost of one of his victims appears in order to exact his chilling revenge. Giovanni is given the choice of changing his ways or facing eternal damnation.

A three-disc set, the film has been “lovingly restored” and is presented in 1.66:1 anamorphic widescreen with a new 5.1 DTS 96/24 audio mix alongside a new Dolby Surround mix and the original Dolby Surround. Extras include exclusive documentaries “Losey and Don Giovanni”, “About Don Giovanni” and “The Sound Odyssey 1978-2006”.
