Don Giovanni

January 16–30, 2021
McCaw Hall

Philip Newton

What goes around comes around on Mozart’s carousel of karma in an elegant new production from a female creative team. 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. Staged and conducted by female artists, an all-new production brings unique insight to a timeless portrait of the ultimate predator. Glamorous costumes combine period silhouettes with modern sensibility. The action plays out on a multifaceted carnival ride whose chic exterior promises pleasure and abundance while concealing a rotten core.
