Murder, seduction, eternal damnation,
and other secrets of the night.
According to his (not-so-little) black book, Don Giovanni has seduced 1,003
women in Spain alone. Over the course of a scandalously sinful day, his
misadventures come back to literally haunt him, as Mozart's brilliant score
whirls people in and out of the Don's midst. One of the greatest operas ever
written, Don Giovanni simply does not age. If you've never
seen it, come discover the glory of a piece that has been thrilling audiences
(and shocking a few of them) for over 225 years. If you've seen it less than
1,003 times, come see it brought to life afresh, with a young, vibrant cast.
Starring Kelly Markgraf, Elizabeth Caballero, Caitlin Lynch, Angela Mannino, Wesley Rogers, Matt Boehler, John Arnold, Nathan Stark
