John Hoomes' Original Production

Mozart takes on the libertine adventures of Don Juan, and John Hoomes brings modern relevance to this ageless story!  Examining good and evil (and the lies people tell themselves), DON GIOVANNI masterfully mixes comedy and drama as we follow the lascivious Don Giovanni from one conquest to the next.  Mozart’s incredible music propels the story to its breathless finale, because every party must come to an end...and everyone must pay for their sins.  Or do they?  This strikingly visual production offers a different take on the traditional tale, making it even more relevant to today’s audience!  

By Wolfgang Amadeus Mozart
Sung in Italian with projected English translations
Two acts, 1 intermission (2 hours, 45 minutes total)
