Mozart’s Don Giovanni

Opera is back at the NAC with a thrilling performance of Mozart’s Don Giovanni, featuring a superstar cast of soloists and Ottawa’s amazing and ever-versatile Ewashko Singers under the direction of Laurence Ewashko.
Don Giovanni is undeniably one of Mozarts’s supreme achievements, but did you know it is also widely regarded as the finest opera of all time? Overflowing with comedy, tragedy, drama, and the supernatural, Don Giovanni recounts the conquests and ultimate downfall of the womanizing Giovanni, all wrapped in some of the most beautiful music ever written.
In a single day, Giovanni (an irresistible rogue who is loved by women everywhere almost as much as he loves himself) leaves a trail of debauchery, ravaged hearts, murder, and mayhem, until he is finally consumed by a force beyond the grave.
A truly epic paean to unbridled nihilism and immorality, Don Giovanni offers fair warning to libertines everywhere!
The National Arts Centre Orchestra is pleased to present Don Giovanni in collaboration with Banff Centre for Arts and Creativity.
