Don Giovanni

Often considered the greatest opera ever composed, Mozart’s masterpiece combines comedy and drama to capture the downfall of a serial womanizer. From its thrilling overture to final breathtaking scene, the opera explores issues of amorality, power and justice, making it as relevant today as it was in Mozart’s time. Don Giovanni is a notorious lover who callously charms many women with his predatory practices. But when Don Giovanni forces himself on Donna Anna, his behavior is finally met with THE wrath of his female conquests who unite to speak out against their offender—and send him to his fiery fate.
