Don Giovanni

Streamed March 19–21, 2021

“A breathtaking virtual experience”
Eclectic Arts

Overview

The show's a success”

– The Seattle Times


Music by Wolfgang Amadeus Mozart; Libretto by Lorenzo Da Ponte

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.
