Opera on the Couch

Steven Goldberg, MD and Milton Schaefer, PhD, Co-Chairs

Don Giovanni

Wherever he goes, trouble follows.

Music by Wolfgang Amadeus Mozart | Libretto by Lorenzo Da Ponte

Don Giovanni is a serial seducer, a flagrant hedonist with an outsized ego to match. But when the legendary playboy goes too far, his appetite for seduction could bring his downfall. Mozart’s smart and otherworldly take on Don Juan explores the darker side, delivering a brilliant flirtation between comedy and tragedy, lust and logic, pleasure and pain.
