Mozart's Don Giovanni from the Royal Opera House
Saturday, October 25, 2014
Saturday at 1 pm, join us to hear Mozart's Don Giovanni, a depiction of the last day and night of the most iconic of seducers, in a widely-acclaimed Covent Gardent production directed by Kasper Holten. Polish baritone Mariusz Kwiecien is the the infamous womanizer whose “little black book” holds thousands of names.
Donna Elvira (Véronique Gens ), whom he abandoned three days after their hasty wedding, conspires with the scorned Donna Anna (Malin Byström) and her betrothed Don Ottavio (Antonio Poli) to bring the rake to justice. Alex Esposito plays the Don’s lackey Leporello; Elizabeth Watts is the innocent Zerlina, whose wedding to Masetto (Dawid Kimberg) is threatened by Giovanni’s charms; Alexander Tsymbalyuk plays the omniscient Commendatore.
