Set in the French Antilles, this one-act musical from the creators of Ragtime and Seussical combines elements of both Romeo and Juliet and The Little Mermaid. The result is an exhilarating calypso-tinged story filled with infectious rhythms, rousing dance and exuberant theatricality. The Tony-nominated hit chronicles the fairy-tale love of a young peasant girl for a handsome young aristocrat -- a love that leads her to save him from death. As the gods debate the star-crossed lovers' fate, the islanders gather to sing and celebrate the hope of the human spirit. Learn More

Great show. I find West Bay Opera always does well. What a delight to find that there's one tune I'm familiar with, and many other rewarding scenes. The "comic relief", the super-titles, the Mozart patter, the two finales, all good. I've wanted to see this since "Amadeus" years ago and it's a great reward for patience. It's Mozart, for heaven's sake. I find that newspaper reviewers set their bars far too high. I'm in the audience grouping (it's a large group) that should take no notice at all of a slightly negative Chronicle so-so review of any show.
If you're not early, there's residential street parking. It's a short drive to University and its side streets' restaurants.
The Sunday afternoon audience was as expected -- I admire the efforts to get older folk to the opera. And the champagne was an OK bargain.
Arguably Mozart's best and most dramatically accomplished opera, and considered by some to be the best opera ever written, Don Giovanni packs in arias and ensembles of tremendous technical challenge and sublime beauty. Combining tragedy, humor and astonishing depth of characterization, Don Giovanni is a piece sure to dazzle and inspire, and it is the world's seventh most performed opera.
About the Ticket Supplier: West Bay Opera
Performing both the familiar and the adventurous, West Bay Opera seeks to please and challenge singers and audiences with three productions per season, one each in October, February, and May. The repertoire includes standard popular works, lesser-known operas and operettas, and occasionally operas by modern composers. Some of West Bay Opera’s greatest successes result from undertaking formidable artistic challenges. Past accomplishments include Bellini’s rarely-performed Norma, Tchaikovsky’s Eugene Onegin in the original Russian, and Wagner’s Der Fliegende Holländer. The principal consideration is always to give talented young opera singers an opportunity to perform challenging roles and, in turn, to give audiences the pleasure of hearing these singers on their way to fame.
