    Interview: Teddy Tahu Rhodes, Don Giovanni in 2011 with Opera Australia (Sydney & Melbourne)

    Interview: Teddy Tahu Rhodes, Don Giovanni in 2011 with Opera Australia (Sydney & Melbourne)

    He's charismatic. He's sexy. He's so, so dangerous. His sweet serenades go to your head like champagne, but his total lack of remorse is hard to swallow. One moment the music is dark and ominous, the next it flies high on adrenalin.

    Don Giovanni loves the thrill of the chase, but his deeds are beginning to catch up with him. He can outrun a jilted lover and dodge a jealous boyfriend but a figure from beyond the grave? That might stop him in his tracks.

    Teddy Tahu Rhodes is a principal artist with Opera Australia, here he discusses how he prepares and performs as Don Giovanni, as well as his thrill at working with Conal Coad (Leporello).
