Riccardo Muti conducts a sublime cast, headed by Thomas Allen in the title role of the great seducer, in the 1987 La Scala recording of Mozart and Da Ponte’s tale of lust and subversion.

BBC Music Magazine

September 2004

***

“A rare operatic detour on the part of a great theatre director, Giorgio Strehler, it does bear a distinctive theatrical stamp… Thomas Allen's Giovanni (in splendidly aristocratic form) and Claudio Desderi's Leporello enact a limitlessly fascinating central relationship, and Susanne Mentzer is a delicious Zerlina.”

Katherine Cooper

December 2014

“I heartily recommend Giorgio Strehler's broadly traditional (but in its way just as nasty and brutish) 1987 production from La Scala, with Riccardo Muti presiding over a cast headed by Thomas Allen's classy but vicious rake and a superb trio of women in Edita Gruberová, Ann Murray and Susanne Mentzer.”
