Don Giovanni

Streaming March 19–21

Subscriber Early Access Days begin February 26. 

Overview

Okulitch sings with richness, vigor and subtle lyricism and brings a dark, brooding quality to the character.”

The New York Times

 

Music by Wolfgang Amadeus Mozart; Libretto by Lorenzo Da Ponte

Streaming March 19–21 for $35. 
Subscriber Early Access Days begin February 26.

What goes around comes around on Mozart’s carousel of karma. Legendary libertine Don Giovanni is skilled in seduction yet lacks a moral compass, thoughtlessly moving from conquest to conquest, even murdering without remorse. But a dark fate will bring his joyride to a shocking conclusion, leaving the survivors who knew him forever changed. Filled with varied and evocative music of perfect elegance, Mozart’s complex creation stands apart as his boldest masterpiece.
