The 2020-21 Metropolitan Opera Radio Broadcast season continues with Mozart’s gripping morality tale Don Giovanni in an encore broadcast from 2012.
Bass-baritone Gerald Finley starred in the title role as the charismatic and notorious Don Juan. Soprano Marina Rebeka was Donna Anna, the noblewoman who swears vengeance on Giovanni, and tenor Matthew Polenzani was her dutiful fiancé Don Ottavio.
Soprano Ellie Dehn sang Donna Elvira and mezzo-soprano Isabel Leonard was the peasant girl Zerlina, two more of Giovanni’s victims, and bass-baritone Bryn Terfel was the Don’s hectored servant Leporello.
Andrew Davis conducted the Met Orchestra and Chorus in a musical masterpiece that balances on a knife-edge between drama and comedy.
Mozart’s Don Giovanni will be heard over the Toll Brothers-Metropolitan Opera International Radio Network at 1:00 p.m. ET on Saturday, March 27. Listen to it on Classical IPR.
