Tobias Ringborg “thrills” with Don Giovanni

08 October 2012

Opera North’s first Don Giovanni for seven years was warmly received by critics and opera fans alike. Critics wrote that the Opera North orchestra played “thrillingly” [Alfred Hickling, The Guardian] for conductor Tobias Ringborg. His performance was deemed to be both stylish and attentive, fuelling the sense of drama and bringing a “welcome life to the stage” [Andrew Clark, The Telegraph].

The production also stars two other Rayfield Allied artists: Elizabeth Atherton as Donna Elvira and Michael Druiett as Il Commendatore. Richard Morrison [The Times] writes that Atherton sings “Donna Elvira’s big, heartfelt arias with admirable clarity and poise.” Additionally, Michael Druiett “has remarkable stage presence, exuding authority even as a head poking up through a trap door” [Richard Wilcocks, Bach Track].

The production is due to tour until November 24th in Leeds, Salford Quays, Newcastle upon Tyne and Nottingham.
