Mozart’s Finest

Just got back from the opening night of Lyric Opera’s Don Giovanni and my full report will be a part of this Sunday’s Playtime with Bill Turck and Kerri Kendall, I wanted to let everyone know that this is a MUST SEE.

The friend who joined me for the performance noted that Don Giovanni is a great classic because of its excellent story and music. All of this is true, yet it also requires a great company to turn out a classic performance. The Lyric was clearly up to the job.

Every aspect of this performance, music, singing, acting, lighting, sets, and costumes was excellent. The result is a thrilling spectacle: More than once I missed the English supertitles because I was so enchanted with what was happening onstage.
