Seattle Opera Opening Performance

by Wolfgang Amadeus Mozart
MAN, MYTH, OR MONSTER? Mozart’s multifaceted portrait of an unrepentant Casanova has fascinated audiences since its 1787 premiere. To this day it endures as opera’s ultimate cautionary tale about the human cost of unbridled lust. Featuring varied, evocative, and absolutely glorious music from overture to epilogue, a dynamic set of distinctively drawn characters, and a shocking, unforgettable finale, “the Don” stands apart as Mozart’s boldest masterpiece.
