Music by Wolfgang Amadeus Mozart
Libretto by Lorenzo Da Ponte
So Hot, He’ll Burn
Don Giovanni is an egotistical and infamous womanizer, brazen in his shameless seductions. But his betrayals soon catch up to him when divine retribution exacts the ultimate price. From the world’s most well-known composer, Mozart’s opera seamlessly blends dark comedy with biting social commentary in this smart and otherworldly story of a man who dares to defy hell itself.
Performed in Italian with English translations projected above the stage.
Approximately three hours and 17 minutes with one intermission.
