Mozart’s Don Giovanni: Maryland Opera Studio
Join us in person at The Clarice! Please note that this performance will not be livestreamed.
While fleeing the scene of his crime, the lascivious Don Giovanni commits an unimaginable murder. This depraved act unleashes hell itself in an opera that masterfully combines dark comedy with the darkest of acts. With themes that continue to resonate today, Mozart and Da Ponte create a world as troubling and complicated in our time as it was at its premiere. This opera will be performed in Italian with English supertitles.
The Don Giovanni story exposes many unacceptable and traumatic behaviors, which include sexual violence. We stand with campus and advocacy organizations nationwide in acknowledging Sexual Assault Awareness Month and appreciate the support of our campus community organizations who are providing resources for this production. We encourage you to take advantage of these available tools as we work to prevent and address sexual violence at UMD and beyond. Resources will be available for audience members in the lobby during each performance, and community members looking for additional support can contact:
