Some noteworthy singers have taken over the main roles in Michael Grandage's production of Don Giovanni, the story of the young, arrogant and sexually promiscuous nobleman who encounters something he cannot kill, beat up, dodge or outwit.
The bass-baritone Gerald Finley is Don Giovanni, the tenor Matthew Polenzani is Don Ottavio, and the soprano Ellie Dehn as Donna Elvira. The bass-baritone Bryn Terfel, taking the place of the scheduled John Relyea, sings Leporello. The soprano Marina Rebeka returns as Donna Anna.
Finley last sang Don Giovanni at the Met in 2005. His other starring roles in recent seasons include the title role in the Met premiere of John Adams’s Doctor Atomic and Golaud in Debussy’s Pelléas et Mélisande.
The production, which premiered in October, is conducted by Andrew Davis.
