Tony Award–winning director Ivo van Hove makes a major Met debut with a new take on Mozart’s tragicomedy, re-setting the familiar tale of deceit and damnation in an abstract architectural landscape and shining a light into the dark corners of the story and its characters.
Maestro Nathalie Stutzmann makes her Met debut conducting a star-studded cast led by baritone Peter Mattei, considered one of today’s great Don Giovanni interpreters, alongside the Leporello of bass-baritone Adam Plachetka. Sopranos Federica Lombardi, Ana María Martínez, and Ying Fang make a superlative trio as Giovanni’s conquests – Donna Anna, Donna Elvira, and Zerlina – and tenor Ben Bliss is Don Ottavio.

“Magnificent! Impressive and perfectly cast … dramatically and musically affecting …a rich experience with real-world resonance.” (Financial Times)

“A splendid cast led by Stutzmann in an impressive Met debut makes Don Giovanni a must-see!” (Observer)
