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

The music selections were wonderful and generally well performed. The maestro extremely personable and made the audience feel welcome and included. Loved Duke Ellington's Solitude, the Leroy Anderson piece which took us back to another era when that piece was popular during our growing up years, the Holberg Suite by Grieg wonderful to hear and sounded upbeat and pretty much on the money, and the Handel pieces although pretty complex were good. Nice job on the program handout.
