This major exhibition offers an exciting journey through a career that has pushed at the boundaries of contemporary art. From the moment he burst onto the scene with floating basket balls and ready-made objects to his recent re-working of classical statues and Old Master paintings, Jeff Koons has, at turns, delighted, shocked and intrigued his viewers.

Don Giovanni | Garsington Opera - Dates throughout June

Including some of Mozart’s most glorious music, from the famous ‘catalogue aria’ through to the spine-tingling demand for repentance, this new production sees the return of director Michael Boyd (Eugene Onegin, 2016 and Pelléas et Mélisande, 2017) with Douglas Boyd conducting.
