Opera in Williamsburg presents Mozart's Don Giovanni at the Kimball Theatre on Halloween weekend

Opera in Williamsburg is proud to announce its upcoming production of one of Opera's most beloved masterpieces: Don Giovanni by Wolfgang Amadeus Mozart. It will be performed at the Kimball Theatre on October 30 and November 1, fully staged, sung in Italian with English supertitles. The story has a supernatural flavor befitting the haunted theme of Halloween weekend: the legendary hero is an irresistible and immoral nobleman, who conquers his way among the fair sex until he is pulled down to hell by the graveyard statue of a person he has killed. Opera in Williamsburg has an outstanding multi-national cast assembled for this production, led by guest conductor Maestro Richard Cordova and stage director Laura Alley.

This fall Opera in Williamsburg will introduce a Sunday matinee on November 1, as well as having a Friday night performance on October 30. Tickets are available at the Kimball box office and at www.operainwilliamsburg.org -- general seating $45, discount $40 (military, teachers, college faculty and staff, police, firefighters); students $15.

The public can also meet the production's singers at a free curtain-raiser event at the new Williamsburg Art Gallery on Merchants Square on October 22 at 6:30 pm. There will also be an opportunity to hear members of the international cast accompanied by world renowned pianist Abdiel Vazquez at a dinner concert at the Colonial Heritage Ballroom on October 23 -- tickets are available on our web site for $35 including a fixed-price dinner or $15 for the concert only.
