Very brief review, Andrew Clark, ft.com, 2 stars

"The Glyndebourne Festival has issued two previous productions [of Don Giovanni] on DVD, both with some virtues but not top-drawer choices (Peter Hall's 1977 staging and Deborah Warner's lean, really mean 1995 version). EMI's new release from the 2010 festival is, overall, better sung than either predecessor--and decidedly more excitingly and stylishly conducted by Vladimir Jurowski."--David Shengold, Opera News of September 2011.
