In one of the most enthralling and brilliantly constructed operas in the repertory, Mozart challenges all of our senses, presenting musical characterizations of piercing psychological depth.
Set in Seville, in the 1600s
Don Giovanni is an infinitely nuanced nobleman and rake who lives for his libido, arrogantly flouting the most basic social conventions. Only Leporello, his trickster servant, adds a comic note as he helps his master make his conquests. Don Giovanni racks up a long list of enemies who seek to bring him down. In the end, however, only divine retribution can deliver justice.
