In anticipation of its forthcoming production of the Mozart classic, New York City Opera will host an Oct. 27 event exploring the legend behind Don Giovanni. The 7 PM presentation will be held at the Museum of Sex in Manhattan.
New York City Opera's own Don Juan (bass-baritone Daniel Okulitch) in its new production of Don Giovanni, director Christopher Alden, and Esther Perel, a prominent sexologist, join us for an intimate, provocative exchange on the Don Juan legend, including a live excerpt from Don Giovanni, and film and audio clips and slides.
The evening will explore history versus myth, the Don's changing image, how Mozart's Don Juan relates to the composer's own lusty sexuality, City Opera's new interpretation, and Don Juan in the 21st century.
Christopher Alden, director
Daniel Okulitch, bass-baritone
Esther Perel, couple therapist, author of Mating in Captivity: Unlocking Erotic Intelligence
Liora Maurer, pianist
Moderator: Cori Ellison, City Opera Dramaturg
Tickets are $10. The Museum of Sex is located at 233 Fifth Avenue in Manhattan.
