Don Giovanni

June 22, 7:30 PM & June 24, 3:00 PM
NorShor Theatre

Lights, Camera… Opera! Lyric Opera of the North celebrates the opening of the NorShor with a production of Don Giovanni set in the “Golden Age” of 1930s Hollywood.

In this Mozart-meets-the-movies production, our leading man uses his power to play with the lives of everyone on set. But every action has a consequence, and although he’s well-rehearsed—nothing could prepare him as the line between fantasy and reality blur at the movie studio.

Christina Baldwin directs, Dirk Meyer conducts, and Calland Metts stars in the title role.

Run Time: Estimated 2 hours and 45 minutes with one intermission
Language: Sung in Italian and English, with English supertitles.

Pre-Performance Chat with MPR’s Steve Staruch Opening Night Only.

Steve Staruch, from Classical MPR, will be joined by Lyric Opera of the North Music Director, Dirk Meyer, and Stage Director Christina Baldwin, in the lobby at 6:30 p.m. on Friday, June 22.  We’ll hear about Mozart, Don Giovanni, and the process of bringing this brand-new production to life in the newly renovated NorShor Theatre! No separate ticket required – just come early and join in the conversation!
