Don Giovanni

October 4, 2023 @ 7:30 pm - October 15, 2023 @ 11:00 pm

Composed by Wolfgang Amadeus Mozart

Conducted by James Conlon

In the heat of the moment, the notorious Don Giovanni (aka Don Juan) murders the father of one of his conquests, unwittingly unleashing an ominous force from beyond the grave that can’t be stopped. Accustomed to getting away with anything and everything, he must now face the music as years of cruelty and debauchery come due.

Grammy Award-winning baritone Lucas Meachem returns as the ill-fated playboy, leading a dazzling ensemble of singers including Craig Colclough, Guanqun Yu and Isabel Leonard. James Conlon, renowned for his astonishing command of Mozart, conducts what many consider to be the greatest of all operas in a visually spectacular production by director Kasper Holten, with scenery by stage designer extraordinaire Es Devlin, known for innovative stage designs for Beyoncé, Adele, U2 and others.

Performed in Italian with English subtitles

Running time: approximately three hours and 35 minutes, with one intermission.

Audio description will be available for the October 1 matinee.
