Mozart’s Don Giovanni, November 16 – December 7, 2019
Don Giovanni is the story of the world’s greatest lover, Don Juan, a young, arrogant, and charismatic aristocrat, who will stop at nothing to fulfill his ravenous lust. But when a midnight seduction ends in murder, Don Giovanni soon finds himself pursued on all sides by those he has wronged in the past. This masterwork is a brilliant combination of an engrossing story of seduction and vengeance set to the lavishly orchestrated musical genius of Mozart.
