Don Giovanni at Mission Opera
Mozart's 'Don Giovanni' brought to life in a modern day interpretation of womanizing and abuse of power in 21st century Hollywood.
The setting is a 2010 Hollywood Casting/Production Studio. The show opens with a dream and ends with Don Giovanni's schizophrenia leading to his suicide. We are left to decide if Anna, Ottavio and the Commandatore really exist, or if they are simply figments of Giovanni's imagination.
The themes in 'Don Giovanni' are timeless. In every era and society, you can find someone without a moral compass, who abuses power to get what they want. In the wake of the #metoo movement, and arrest of Harvey Weinstein, this production just made sense.
Don Giovanni will last 2 hours, with one 15 minute intermission.
