Meet Don Giovanni. The
seducer. The manipulator who lives only for his own pleasure. Our
antihero is surrounded by his frustrated servant Leporello and three
women: fiery Donna Elvira, tormented Donna Anna, and impressionable
Zerlina. Our production will transport you to 1990’s Spain in the
decadent style of cinematographer Pedro Almodóvar.
Our set and costumes are a celebration of Spanish kitsch replete with
Chanel clothing, neon signs and pop culture influences. Filled with
thrilling music, drama, humor, and a finale so powerfully dramatic that
it changed music forever, this is a production not to be missed!
