Mozart's infamous opera of illicit affairs and the abuse of power gets turned on its ear by the D.C. Public Opera, which transforms Don Giovanni into a present-day tale set in Washington, D.C. Held at the glamorous Mayflower Hotel, this innovative production retains the spirit and power of Mozart's music and message, while putting a new twist on the action. Sung in Italian with a full orchestra conducted by John Edward Niles, the inaugural production of D.C. Public Opera heralds a unique vision for the future of the genre. Learn More

Quotes & Highlights
“As majestic images of Half Dome and Horsetail Falls fade in and out on a giant screen, the music builds and then melts to mirror the majesty of a church or echoes the Southwestern style as a mission takes the screen. When the final moonlit mountain went dark, the music stopped and the full house erupted. The effect is both inspiring and humbling.” —J.T. Long, _Sacramento Press _
