Kyle Ketelsen and Mariusz Kwiecień in 'Don Giovanni'

Looks can be deceiving, as many learn painfully from the charming and dubious Don Giovanni. On this broadcast from the Lyric Opera of Chicago, recorded last autumn, Polish baritone Mariusz Kwiecien plays the legendary playboy, whose “little black book” holds thousands of names.

Donna Elvira (Ana María Martínez), whom he abandoned three days after their hasty wedding, conspires with the scorned Donna Anna (Marina Rebeka) and her betrothed Don Ottavio (Antonio Poli) to bring the rake to justice. Kyle Ketelsen plays his signature role of Leporello; Andriana Chuchman is the innocent Zerlina, whose wedding to Masetto (Michael Sumuel) is threatened by Giovanni’s charms; Andrea Silvestrelli plays the omniscient Commendatore.
