?The Grand Seducers: Giovanni Meets Xi-men Qing: a new East-West Opera with music by noted composer Gang Situ, represents the romances and chance encounters of two legendary Casanovas, Mozart?s ?Don Giovanni? and Xi-men Qing of the Water Margin Heroes novel (Song Dynasty, 960?1280 A.D.). This innovative operatic creation combines Mozart?s great rendition of Don Giovanni and famous characters from classic Chinese opera in a new story by prolific librettist Cao Lusheng. The opera, sung in English punctured with Chinese, features Merola Opera artists with vocal brilliance and comic ebullience, under the direction of Isabel Milenski. Music by Gang Situ; Libretto by Cao Lusheng; Directed by Isabel Milenski. All performances are at the Chinese Culture Center, 750 Kearny Street, 3rd Floor, San Francisco. Thursday, May 18, 8pm; Friday, May 19, 8pm; Saturday, May 20, 2pm and 8pm
