BY WOLFGANG AMADEUS MOZARTPart three of the Mozart-Da Ponte TrilogyJune 4–July 2, 2022
Pleasure Has Its PriceFleeing the scene of his crime, a lecherous nobleman commits a heinous murder—an act so depraved that it unleashes the vengeance of hell itself.
The Mozart-Da Ponte trilogy concludes in a post-apocalyptic future with Don Giovanni, an opera that masterfully blends dark comedy with even darker deeds.
Bertrand de Billy conducts Mozart’s propulsive score. Starring Etienne Dupuis, Luca Pisaroni, Adela Zaharia, and Nicole Car.
