John Malkovich to play Casanova
John Malkovich is to star as 18th century womaniser Casanova in a new Austrian theatre production.
The Hollywood actor will play an aged Casanova in The Giacomo Variations, which is described as a mix between a play and an opera and will feature music by Wolfgang Amadeus Mozart.
Austrian radio quoted Malkovich as saying that "it's the closest I'll ever get to realising my boyhood dream of being in the Vienna Boys' Choir".
The Giacomo Variations is slated to premiere at Vienna's Ronacher Theatre on January 5.
