Tama Matheson and Karin Schaupp
"Don Juan was a tour-de-force for both Karin Schaupp and Tama Matheson." 4MBS-FM
Don Juan is a feast of music and adventure, following the life of one of the most magnetic and seductive heroes in western literature, and his equally charismatic creator, Lord Byron.
Co-created by actor/writer/director Tama Matheson and acclaimed guitarist/actor Karin Schaupp, Don Juan interweaves poetry, drama, and music into a unique 90-minute semi-staged presentation.
The wonderfully evocative music of Turina, Pujol, and Tarrega transports the audience to the worlds of Byron and Don Juan. As Schaupp steps into the drama and becomes part of the play, supporting Matheson’s powerful portrayal of Byron, the performance scintillates with romance, passion, humour and intrigue.
Tama Matheson and Karin Schaupp are a formidable duo, creating a colourful tapestry of beautifully crafted words and virtuosic music of the highest calibre. The rhythm of Byron’s great poem is underlined by the seductive lyricism and rhythm of Schaupp’s guitar in this unique and memorable theatrical event.
