Mozart's opera about the sexual conquests and adventures of a young libertine will be presented by Opera Tennessee in three performances this weekend.
"Don Giovanni" will be performed in Northside Presbyterian Church, 923 Mississippi Ave., Thursday and Friday, Oct. 10-11, at 7 p.m. and Sunday, Oct. 13, at 2 p.m. It is a fully staged production of the opera with chamber orchestra, set in the 1950s.
The two-act play is based on the legends of Don Juan. Don Giovanni is a young rake/nobleman who refuses to repent. He abuses and outrages everyone else in the cast until he encounters something he cannot kill, dodge or outwit. "Don Giovanni" blends comedy with melodrama and supernatural elements.
Justin Colon is cast in the title role of Don Giovanni and Brett Hyberger plays his servant/sidekick Leporello.
Christine Hassevoort plays Donna Anna, Jason Canter is Don Ottavio, Tricia Logsden is Zerlina, Timothy Marshall is Masetto, Sara Snider Schone is Donna Elvira and Perry Ward plays The Commendatore.
Stage direction is by Scott Willis. Joshua Golden conducts the orchestra.
