Don Giovanni

Don Giovanni

Story

Mozart’s ultimate bad boy meets his match in Anna Netrebko, the opera world’s “hottest female star.” Don Giovanni stars Peter Mattei as the philandering Don, with Bryn Terfel as his sidekick Leporello, and the velvety voiced Ms. Netrebko as the much-abused Donna Anna. This audience favorite, for both its surprisingly modern plot and soaring melodies, is broadcast from opening night at La Scala, with Daniel Barenboim at the podium.
