Don Giovanni

Available to 2020/21 season ticket holders.

Premieres Friday, February 26, 2020 at 7:00 PM. 

Overview

Okulitch sings with richness, vigor and subtle lyricism and brings a dark, brooding quality to the character.”

The New York Times

 

Music by Wolfgang Amadeus Mozart; Libretto by Lorenzo Da Ponte

This online stream is available to 2020/21 season ticket holders with Don Giovanni in their subscription from February 26–March 21, 2021.

What goes around comes around on Mozart’s carousel of karma. Legendary libertine Don Giovanni is skilled in seduction yet lacks a moral compass, thoughtlessly moving from conquest to conquest, even murdering without remorse. But a dark fate will bring his joyride to a shocking conclusion, leaving the survivors who knew him forever changed. Filled with varied and evocative music of perfect elegance, Mozart’s complex creation stands apart as his boldest masterpiece.
