Don Giovanni: Essential Opera
Don Giovanni: Essential Opera presents this essential work of the opera repertory in a way that responds to the needs of our current times and to our artists and audience. The performance will focus on the essence of the music and drama in an abridged, 90-minute production (with no intermission) that captures all of Mozart’s greatness in an exciting and 21st century way. This compact format will adhere to social distancing and other health parameters for a welcomed and safe experience for both our artists and audience.
Don Giovanni is one of opera’s most compelling anti-heroes. Based on legends of the infamous Don Juan, the tale follows the title character through seduction, deception, ominous foreshadowing, and irreverent reveling, all the way to a hair-raising ending where things get a little “heated,” and our rapscallion gets his just rewards! It’s no wonder that Don Giovanni is one of Mozart’s supreme musical achievements and is considered one of the greatest operas of all time.
