Based on the legends of Don Juan, a fictional libertine and seducer, this masterpiece of the operatic repertoire blends comedy, melodrama and supernatural elements.

Featuring acclaimed British-Canadian baritone Alexander Dobson in the title role, supported by fantastic young Canadian talent.

“A vivacious, absolutely seductive Don Giovanni, with a voice of superb tone.  A real career lies ahead of him.”
                                                    —La Presse

“Baritone Alexander Dobson used a ringing, present sound and duplicitous charm to create the quintessential bad boy.”
               —Milwaukee Journal-Sentinal

“The title protagonist was embodied in physique, serpentine poses and baritone power by Alexander Dobson. He flashes his sword and prowls for women like Douglas Fairbanks reborn into lechery. He must be simultaneouly loathsome and attractive — a serial seducer working his way across Europe. Dobson not only has to sing amazingly crisp and strut with arrogance among his victims, he also has to relish the cynical laughter of the world’s most incorrigible cock of the walk.”
                                        —Urban Milwaukee
