by Wolfgang Amadeus Mozart
Bass-baritone Luca Pisaroni stars as opera’s most notorious seducer in Mozart’s masterpiece of dark comedy.
Mozart retells the Don Juan myth from a point of view that is neither tragic nor entirely comic, but rather lighthearted, urbane, and ironic. We follow the title character and his earthy comic sidekick, Leporello, through a series of encounters that begins with a fatal duel, moves back and forth between the humorous and the sentimental, and ends with the protagonist being dragged down to hell.
This Met production places the action in an unnamed Spanish city in the mid-18th century.
