Mozart: Don Giovanni (March 20 – 22, 2020)
Mozart’s iconic operatic masterpiece Don Giovanni is the second mainstage show of the Indianapolis Opera season, presented at “The Toby” Theater at Newfields.
Based on the legend of Don Juan, Don Giovanni is a story of power, pleasure, violence, and their many consequences. And yet, the opera is also known for its many comedic and lighter moments, from Leporello’s “Catalogue Aria” to Zerlina’s “Vedrai, Carino”. Librettist Lorenzo Da Ponte’s adaptation of the text combines elements of drama, comedy, and the supernatural to make Don Giovanni the height of dramma giocoso – a unique composite of comic opera with a dark underside. American baritone Eric McKeever from the Lyric Opera of Chicago will star in the title role, and Metropolitan Opera soprano Kirsten Chambers will star as Donna Anna. The production will be sung in Italian with projected English supertitles.
