Opera audiences will be given the chance to vote on whether Don Giovanni lives or dies in an upcoming performance of the Mozart staple in London's upcoming Vault festival.
Silent Opera, who have pioneered the use of mobile technology and headphone-based performances in previous productions, will be bringing a series of innovations to a classic Mozart opera in February and March.
Taking place as part of the Vault festival from February 25th to March 8th, the production will take advantage of the spectacular underground vaults beneath London's Waterloo station.
This Don Giovanni will feature a smartphone app exclusive to ticket-holders that will allow the audience to decide the Don's ultimate fate.
Audience members will be able to see off-stage character updates, motivations and locations as they experience the opera.
Pre-recorded character thoughts and spoken-word content will also provide context for audiences hoping to experience opera in a brand new way, alongside the live performers.
Silent Opera pride themselves on having an audience demographic of 60% under the age of 30 and 50% having never experienced an opera before in their lives.
Tickets for Don Giovanni are available here.
