Don Giovanni
Music by W.A. Mozart
Libretto by Lorenzo da Ponte
Sung in English

Mary Chun, Music Director
Elly Lichenstein, Stage Director

Widely regarded as one of the greatest operas ever written, Don Giovanni is a brilliant combination of stark human tragedy and ironic comedy, set to music of limitless genius. The young nobleman, Don Giovanni, treads dangerously: morally reprehensible, rapacious and remorseless, he relentlessly pursues his own pleasure. But eventually even the most entitled must face that moment of truth.

KRCB Radio: Curtain Call host, Charles Sepos interviews baritone Anders Froehlich and director Elly Lichenstein for the Cinnabar Theater production of "Don Giovanni." Despite his beguiling and seductive persona, the nobleman Don Giovanni is an arrogant, reprehensible, womanizing cad in selfish pursuit of his conquests. When offered the chance to repent in the face of his own damnation, his unflinching defiance determines his fate. The production (presented in English) plays March 23 to April 15, 2012. Listen here
