Don Giovanni’s romantic conquests are so numerous, his sidekick needs a whole aria to list them! But when a father stands between him and the woman he's attempting to seduce, Giovanni murders him and finds himself haunted by the man's ghost. Yet in his moment of judgment, the Don stands unrepentant.
From its spine-tingling first chord to its final bars, Mozart's take on Don Juan, the charismatic anti-hero, is considered by many to be the greatest opera of all time. Charles Gounod, the composer of Faust, called it "a work without blemish, of uninterrupted perfection." This bold, inventive production, originally created for New York City Opera, was praised by The New York Times as “dark, erotic and vividly theatrical . . . striking, insightful.”
Sung in Italian with English projections above the stage.
