EXPERIENCE MOZART’S DON GIOVANNI AS NEVER BEFORE IN A BREATHTAKING NEW PRODUCTIONBy Public RelationsRead the PDF version here.Posted In Press Releases
Toronto – One of Wolfgang Amadeus Mozart’s most powerful and brilliant operas is transformed into a spectacle for the senses and a deeply thought-provoking experience in the Canadian Opera Company’s winter production of Don Giovanni. The twisted comedic masterpiece thrusts audiences into the darkly glamorous world of entitled aristocracy, where the womanizing title character has grown used to getting away with murder–that is, until his latest seduction spirals out of control and leads to an actual murder, setting off a supernatural chain of events that sees karma come calling. Don Giovanni runs for seven performances at the Four Seasons Centre for the Performing Arts on February 2, 4, 7, 9, 15, 17, and 24, 2024.
