Music by Wolfgang Amadeus Mozart | Libretto by Lorenzo Da Ponte
In Mozart’s most celebrated drama, women lead Giovanni from the bedroom to the gates of hell. In this new BLO production, Jennifer Johnson Cano sings the role of Donna Elvira, the woman scorned who pursues Giovanni to the ends of the earth, with new sensation Duncan Rock in the title role. Vivid and transfixing, Mozart’s work is filled with exquisite music, intense drama, and comedic insights.
Sung in Italian with projected English translation
Don Giovanni is a man obsessed. Women rule his life; he desires them, he seduces them, he runs from them.
