All-Star Don Giovanni in Baden-Baden with Schrott & Pisaroni

It's no secret that we love Mozart's Don Giovanni, since it's not only one of the greatest operas ever written, but it seems to provide us with an endless supply of barihunks. The Festspielhaus in Baden-Baden, Germany has not only given us two of the most prominent barihunks in the world, but an all-star cast from top to bottom that would be the envy of any opera company in the world.

Erwin Schrott as Don Giovanni and Luca Pisaroni as Leporello, head a cast that includes Anna Netrebko as Donna Anna, Charles Castronovo as Don Ottavio, Jonathan Lemalu as Masetto and Malena Ernman as Donna Elvira. Performances will run from May 17-26 and tickets are available online.

Luca Pisaroni sings Leporello's Catalogue Aria. 

On June 1, Schrott will return to his Rojotango tour of Argentinian tangos and folk songs by Astor Piazzolla and Pablo Ziegler throughout Germany, Switzerland and Austria. Luca Pisaroni will be flying to the United States to join the Milwaukee Symphony in performances of Elgar's The Dream of Gerontius on May 31 and June 1. Joining him will be mezzo Tamara Mumford and tenor Anthony Dean Griffey.
