Chicago Opera Theater will open their 34th season with Wolfgang Amadeus Mozart’s Don Giovanni. Three Canadian singers will be featured in this production:
Michael Colvin who plays Don Ottavio was last seen at COT in 2006 in Mozart’s Abduction from the Seraglio. He has been hailed in Opera News as having “one of the most beautiful young lyric tenor instruments around.”
Singing Donna Anna is Rhoslyn Jones who made her San Francisco Opera debut last season singing the role of Frasquita in Carmen and with the Arizona Opera in the title role of Floyd’s Susannah.
Singing Donna Elvira is Krisztina Szabó, who starred alongside Samuel Ramey in COT's production of Duke Bluebeard’s Castle last season and who recently sang Komponist in Ariadne auf Naxos with Stadttheater Klagenfurt in Austria.
