Lyric Opera of Chicago - Don Giovanni

Until December 8, 2019

Mozart's ultimate anti-hero returns to prance on the Civic Opera stage this winter! Heating things up with his scandalous ways, Don Giovanni is an impulsive, serial seducer whose libidinous adventures take a turn for the darkly supernatural when he crosses the line and commits murder. Bringing the nobleman's scintillating philandering to life is Russian bass singer Ildar Abdrazakov, who makes his Lyric Opera debut alongside American soprano Rachel Willis-Sorensen in the role of Donna Anna.

Singing the finales of all three of Donizetti's Three Queens Tudor trilogy in one single program is no mean feat, but American-Canadian soprano Sondra Radvanosky, a specialist in 19th-century Italian Opera is more than up to the task. Having embodied all three queens Anna Bolena, Maria Stuarda and Queen Elizabeth I (subject of the Roberto Devereux opera) in a single season, Radvanosky brings her pristine and charismatic interpretations of the royal women to a semi-staged concert at the Chicago's Lyric Opera in December of 2019.
