by Wolfgang Amadeus Mozart
Feb 22, 2019 - Feb 24, 2019 | Alexander W. Dreyfoos, Jr. Concert Hall
Palm Beach Opera will present a film noir-inspired production of Wolfgang Amadeus Mozart’s Don Giovanni, a tale of a libertine’s arrogance, corruption, and unrepentance. Palm Beach Opera’s Chief Conductor Maestro David Stern will lead the cast and orchestra for this production, marking another successful season with the company.
Another Palm Beach Opera debut performance, the title role of Don Giovanni will be performed by Baritone Andrei Bondarenko, who sang the same role for a Sony Classics recording of the opera. Director Kristine McIntyre, who has directed more than 80 operas across the country, will make her Palm Beach Opera debut. Bass Joshua Bloom, who has been praised by The Independent for his “thunderous sound,” will play the role of Leporello in his first performance with the company. Soprano Caitlin Lynch, who was seen as The Countess in Palm Beach Opera’s 2018 production of Le nozze di Figaro, will play the role of Donna Anna, while Danielle Pastin, a soprano who has been praised by Opera News for her “lovely demeanor and irresistibly creamy timbre,” will play Donna Elvira.
Sung in Italian with English supertitles projected above the stage.
