Don Giovanni


Aided by his ingenious librettist, Lorenzo Da Ponte, Mozart approached his operatic retelling of 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.

Bass-baritone Luca Pisaroni stars as opera’s most notorious seducer in Mozart’s masterpiece of dark comedy. Cornelius Meister makes his Met debut conducting a performance that also includes soprano Rachel Willis-Sørensen as Donna Anna, soprano Federica Lombardi as Donna Elvira, and bass Ildar Abdrazakov as Leporello.
