Opera in the Heights’ Don Giovanni

Opera in the Heights’ third production of the season opened last weekend at Lambert Hall.  Two of the production's principals, along with artistic director & conductor Enrique Carreón-Robledo and stage director Stephanie Havey, came into the Geary Studio with St.John Flynn to offer a preview of Mozart’s great work.
 

One of Mozart’s blockbuster collaborations with librettist Lorenzo Da Ponte, Don Giovanni premiered in Prague in 1787.  The opera’s full title, Il dissoluto punito, ossia il Don Giovanni (The Rake Punished, or Don Giovanni), gives audiences a fair idea of how things work out for history’s great seducer of women.  Don Giovanni is currently tenth on the Operabase list of the most-performed operas worldwide.

Members of the Opera in the Heights production came into the Geary Studio to give a taste of what’s in store for opera lovers in Lambert Hall this week.

Adrian Rosas sings Don Giovanni; Mackenzie Whitney is Don Ottavio.  They were joined by pianist Catherine Schaeffer, stage director Stephanie Havey, and artistic director and conductor Enrique Carreón-Robledo.

Performances of Don Giovanni  at Lambert Hall are February 6, 7, 8 at 7:30pm and February 9 at 2:00pm.  Full details on the Opera in the Heights website.
