Don Giovanni is a cad. A womanizing bad guy. But retribution awaits in this dramatic tale leading to self-destruction.

Here’s what “Sunday Night at the Opera” host Alexa Petrenko has to say about tonight’s show:  “Leading up to Opera Atelier’s revival of Mozart’s masterpiece Don Giovanni, director Marshall Pynkoski joins me for a new look at an old favourite. The young, fearless Don Giovanni, aided by his sometimes unwilling servant Leporello, seduces all the sopranos, Donna Anna, Donna Elvira, and Zerlina. He then kills the Commendatore, whom he jokingly invites to dinner … which turns out to be his undoing …”

Check out Opera Atelier’s production of Don Giovanni from October 31 – November 9 at Ed Mirvish Theatre.

“Sunday Night at the Opera” airs at 9 pm on The New Classical FM.
