ORIGINAL LYRIC PRODUCTION
DON GIOVANNIby Wolfgang Amadeus Mozart
Sung in Italian with projected English translations
The seducer. The philanderer. The libertine who takes what he wants and lives only for his own pleasure. All three are Don Giovanni, antihero in Mozart’s drama of lust and revenge. He’s surrounded by memorable characters, including his frustrated servant Leporello and the three women he encounters: fiery Donna Elvira, tormented Donna Anna, and impressionable Zerlina. Filled with thrilling music and drama, including a finale so overpoweringly dramatic that it changed music forever, Don Giovanni is justly celebrated as the perfect opera.
Approximate Running Time: 3 hours, 20 minutes with 1 intermission
