scene from Don Giovanni
Mozart’s Don Giovanni has proven the subject of interest for many writers and philosophers since its premiere in Prague in the late 1770s. Set in Spain in the 1600s, this two-act opera introduces audiences to the arrogant and womanizing Don Giovanni, a man who refuses even in the face of death to repent for his many wrongdoings. Don Giovanni will be streamed live during its Wednesday, December 7 opening night performance at Teatro alla Scala in Milan. Show begins at noon eastern time.
