Have you ever wondered how singers know where and when to be on stage during an opera production? Or, how in the world is anyone able to keep track of the complex moving pieces during show time? With Mozart’s Don Giovanni as the backdrop, members of Minnesota Opera’s staff and the Don Giovanni creative team will take you on a journey exploring the wildly complex world behind the operatic rehearsal and staging process. There will also be a special mini music lecture by Mario Antonio Marra exploring historical context coupled with performances of selections from Don Giovanni by two of our newest Resident Artists—Jeremiah Sanders and Keely Futterer! Join us once again at MetroNOME Brewery as we gear up for Don Giovanni at the Ordway, directed by Keturah Stickann. Attendance guarantees automatic entrance into a prize giveaway raffle and $1 off your first pint upon arrival! Masks suggested, but not required. For more information, visit MN Opera’s Health and Safety page.
