Role debut as ‘Don Giovanni’ at the Metropolitan OperaScroll
Launching the new year, Luca Pisaroni makes his greatly anticipated role debut in the title role of Mozart’s Don Giovanni at the Metropolitan Opera. As the jaunty seducer, Pisaroni is the first Italian Don Giovanni at the Met since bass Ferruccio Furlanetto 28 years ago. German conductor, Cornelius Meister, makes his debut leading the Metropolitan Opera Chorus and Orchestra in Michael Grandage’s timeless production.
Running January 30 through February 20, Pisaroni shares the stage with a renowned roster of singers including Rachel Willis-Sørensen as Donna Anna, Federica Lombardi as Donna Elvira, Aida Garifullina as Zerlina, Stanislas de Barbeyrac as Don Ottavio, Ildar Abdrazakov as Leporello, Brandon Cedel as Masetto, and Štefan Kocán as the Commendatore. At the performance on February 20, Jennifer Check is Donna Anna, Rihab Chaieb is Zerlina, and Peixin Chen is Masetto.
The January 30 & February 16 performances of Don Giovanni will be broadcast live on Metropolitan Opera Radio on SiriusXM Channel 75. On February 16 the performance will be broadcast over the Toll Brothers-Metropolitan Opera International Radio Network, and the January 30 performance will also be streamed live on the Met’s web site, metopera.org.
