|Don Giovanni / Don Juan
This story of the worldâ€™s greatest lover, Don Juan, is considered by many to be the most perfect opera ever written. Don Giovanni was the second collaboration between Mozart and librettist Lorenzo Da Ponte following their success with The Marriage of Figaro. Mozart used the story of the infamous lover, Don Juan, to create one of opera's most vivid characters and one of the world's most popular operas.Buy tickets and hear audio clips.Starring David Pittsinger, who has performed numerous times at the Metropolitan Opera and starred in the recent Tony AwardÂ®-winning Broadway revival of South Pacific at Lincoln Center Theater.
