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

It is wonderful to have the opportunity to see a classic play from another era. This one was excellently staged and costumed, and the acting was very good. Overall, the presentation and the dialogue flowed smoothly; there were many witty lines and these were well-delivered. The play was a bit "campy", but I rather suspect that that is just the way it was intended to be presented at the French court.
Hartke Theatre is comfortable, cold drinks and munchies are available, and parking was easy right outside the theatre on-street.
All in all, it was a most enjoyable event.
