Performance Info

Synopsis: This staple of standard operatic repertoire never disappoints! Although it is often classified as comic, in reality Don Giovanni is a blend of comic (buffa) and dramatic (seria). Perhaps its success is the unique blending of both, aside from the fascinating character of DON GIOVANNI himself, who, despite his scandalous ways still endeared him to women, became a challenge to the men in those days. Don Giovanni (or Don Juan), the infamous womanizer, makes one conquest after another until the ghost of DONNA ANNA's father, the COMMENDATORE, (whom Giovanni killed) makes his appearance. He offers Giovanni one last chance to repent for his multiple improprieties. He will not change his ways, and so he is sucked down into hell by evil spirits. High drama, hysterical comedy, magnificent music!
