‘Don Giovanni’ March 29-April 1

UNCG’s School of Music, Theatre and Dance will present Wolfgang Amadeus Mozart’s classic work “Don Giovanni” March 29-30 and April 1 in Aycock Auditorium.

The opera follows the escapades of the nobleman Don Giovanni, a manipulative playboy whose exploits leave behind a trail of people looking for revenge. The work is considered among the best of the genre, said David Holley (Music), director of the UNCG Opera Program.

Shows will begin at 7:30 p.m. March 29-30 and at 2 p.m. April 1.

“To many people, Mozart was one of the greatest opera composers of all time,” Holley said.

This spring opera marks the first time UNCG Opera has produced “Don Giovanni” in almost 20 years. “The last time we did this opera at UNCG was 1994. We rented the scenery, so many of our artistic choices were made for us,” Holley said. “This time with, a great design team of Deborah Bell, Randy McMullen and Alex Ginder from the UNCG Theatre, we were able to determine the look and the feel of the show from the ground up.”
