Don Giovanni by Michael Voll.png

Mozart’s most famous opera is a comic and tragic masterpiece. Set in 17th century Spain, this tale of obsession, betrayal, crime, and retribution centers around the infamous lover Don Juan, who leaves a path of broken hearts wherever he goes. You'll no want to miss what music historians often refer to as the "best opera in the repertoire!"
