Conductor Alan Gilbert

New York Philharmonic Music Director Alan Gilbert walks across Lincoln Center Plaza to conduct the Metropolitan Opera in this perennial favorite of Mozart's Don Giovanni. Peter Mattei is the rakish Don, Elza van den Heever is Donna Anna, Luca Pisaroni as Leporello declaims his catalog aria, and James Morris takes Don Giovanni to his judgment as The Commendatore.

Lorenzo da Ponte's libretto is made immortal in one of the greatest of all operas, by Wolfgang Amadeus Mozart.

Luca Pisaroni checks his cell phone for the important catalog in "Madamina" at the Poisson Rouge:
