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

A graduate of the Conservatoire de Paris, Descharmes is a founding member of the leading French contemporary ensemble Court-Circuit. He has also worked with the Ensemble Intercontemporain and Ensemble Alternance, and collaborates regularly with IRCAM (Institut de Recherche et Coordination Acoustique/Musique), a renowned institute in Paris dedicated to the research and creation of contemporary music. His audacious project “30 ans > 30 créations” — cataloging the artistic output of 30 contemporary composers over three decades — was premiered at Paris’ Cité de la musique, followed by a tour to other parts of Europe. Since 2004, Descharmes has recorded for the æon label, which has released the works for cello by Saariaho and Liszt (Diapason d’Or of the Year, 2007) and, with his artistic collaborator Sébastien Vichard, Schubert and Huber anthologies.
