Opera’s most notorious bad boy is back in action for our final offering in the 2017/18 season! Don Giovanni is arrogant, sly, and takes pride in his promiscuity, leaving a trail of broken hearts along his egotistical path. Yet no one can resist his charm — women are willing to jeopardize their marriages for him, and men will do whatever it takes to walk in his shadow. But what happens when Don Giovanni comes across a mysterious force he cannot charm, outsmart, or conquer?

The crowning masterpiece of Mozart’s Italian repertoire, Don Giovanni is a fascinating opera that combines elements of comedy, tragedy, and the supernatural, asking essential questions about human morality. Baritone Phillip Addis, adored by Edmonton audiences as Figaro in 2014’s The Barber of Seville, will bring his "physically commanding, vocally authoritative energy" (Opera Canada) as the mysteriously seductive hero in Edmonton Opera's bold new production of Don Giovanni.
