Opera Cheat Sheet: Don Giovanni

Listen to our quick, light-hearted overview of Mozart's Don Giovanni, one of the most-performed operas in the repertoire, which is this week’s Houston Grand Opera broadcast airing Saturday at noon here on Classical 91.7.

This week, Classical 91.7’s program director, St.John Flynn, and opera expert, Eric Skelly, discuss Mozart’s famed Don Giovanni, the story of the downfall of the notoriously unrepentant womanizer, a work composer Charles Gounod described as “that unequalled and immortal masterpiece, that apogée of the lyrical drama.” 

You can hear Houston Grand Opera’s production of Don Giovanni Saturday at noon on Classical 91.7 and online at classical917.org.
