Lyric Opera of Chicago on WRTI: Mozart's DON GIOVANNI! July 15th, 1 PM

Andriana Chuchman sings Zerlina and Mariusz Kwiecien sings the title role in Mozart's DON GIOVANNI.

He's selfish. He's arrogant. He’s dangerous. With a list of conquests as long as the phonebook, Don Giovanni travels the world, snaring princesses and peasant girls alike. Thousands succumb, leaving a path of dishonor and broken lives. When the Don forces himself on the virtuous Donna Anna, her father intervenes and loses his life. Has the Don finally gone too far?

Dark comedy blends seamlessly with biting social commentary in a rip-roaring story full of tantalizing ambiguities. Join us on Saturday, July 15th at 1 pm for an encore broadcast of Mozart's DON GIOVANNI— from Lyric Opera of Chicago.
