Opera's Ultimate Heartbreaker Returns
He’s sly, arrogant, and takes pride in breaking women’s hearts — opera’s most notorious bad boy Don Giovanni is back in all his seductive glory this spring! Often regarded as the crowning masterpiece of Mozart’s Italian repertoire, Don Giovanni combines elements of comedy, tragedy, and the supernatural in a riveting opera experience.
Baritone Phillip Addis, adored by Edmonton audiences as Figaro in 2014’s The Barber of Seville, will bring his “physically commanding, vocally authoritative energy” (Opera Canada) as Mozart’s mysterious hero. Featuring stylish designs by Bretta Gerecke and Deanna Finnman, this bold new production of Don Giovanni promises to steal audiences’ hearts.
