WOLFGANG AMADEUS MOZART
Don Giovanni has seduced innumerable women, inspiring admiration, jealousy, and scorn in equal measure. Now the tables are turned on the unrepentant lord, as those he has wronged join forces to stop him—and a statue comes to life, ending his libertine campaign. The “edgy and imaginative young director” (The New Yorker) R. B. Schlather brings his distinctive vision to Mozart’s masterwork, with the fast-rising conductor Karina Canellakis on the podium.
