Throw caution to the wind. Be led into temptation. Casanova is back.
Consumed by his desires, Casanova lived every minute in a whirlwind of scandal and decadence. But behind the mask, there was more to the man. Casanova takes you inside the heart and mind of one of the most notorious figures in history, exposing a story so sensational you won’t believe it’s real.
With a cinematic score played live by Northern Ballet Sinfonia, and opulent sets and costumes, Kenneth Tindall's Casanova will flood your senses and take your breath away.
