Don G. in D.C.? Well, in a manner of speaking …

DG_Poster_finalNew York Opera Exchange is presenting my favorite Mozart opera–his classic tale of power, seduction, and desire (DON GIOVANNI) seen through the lens of Washington D.C. in the summer of 1963.

Sounds like an entertaining creative premise, doesn’t it?

In their new production, the infamous libertine runs free, abusing his status and wealth to seduce and indulge in an array of sexy vices until past demons return to seek justice.

The production has been directed by Jennifer Shorstein and features the New York Opera Exchange Orchestra conducted by David Leibowitz.

Remaining performances are:
Friday, May 3rd at 7:30pm
Saturday, May 4th at 7:30pm
Sunday, May 5th at 3:00pm

The production will be presented at the Church of the Covenant, 310 E. 42nd St. New York, NY.

Tickets are $30 each ($10 student rush) and are available at the door or in advance at www.nyoperaexchange.com.
