Gustave Flaubert once declared Don Giovanni one of "the three finest things God ever made." Flaubert can be forgiven for thinking Don Giovanni's origins are divine: After all, the two-act opera isn't the handiwork of some mere mortal, it's the enduring masterpiece of Wolfgang Amadeus Mozart. Legend has it Mozart consulted no less than Casanova himself when writing this story of a legendary seducer whose misdeeds become ever more reckless and fatal. When they finally catch up to him, a hellish supernatural force turns up to claim revenge. The Benjamin T. Rome School of Music presents this acclaimed work at Catholic University's Hartke Theatre Complex. Learn More

Enjoyed more than my viewing of the Washington Shakespeare Theatre's production of the same play earlier this year. Imaginative use of the stage, converting it into a black-box theater with ample set pieces. Well staged and acted by a solid company of undergraduate and graduate students.

Written by William Shakespeare
Directed by CUA Professor/Head of the MFA Directing Eleanor Holdridge
Evil queens. Licentious villains. Royal princes stolen in their infancy. Unbridled jealousy. Magic potions. Urbane wits and comic halfwits. Mistaken identities, visitations of the gods, magic talismans and even a Deus ex Machina. All come together in an epic tale of courage and resilience as Shakespeare’s most intrepid heroine undergoes a hazardous journey to regain her lost love and find redemption.
Set against the ancient conflict of a declining Imperial Rome and an insurgent British population, myth and history collide in a grand and timely adventure.
