This June MCO presents two shows in Lunenburg and along the South Shore of Nova Scotia.
Our featured presentation is Mozart’s opera Don Giovanni, performed in Italian (with projected English translations), in concert, accompanied by piano.Â This is one of Mozart’s greatest operas, which he called a dramma giocoso (what we might call a “dramedy” — a mixture of comedy and drama).Â The music, of course, is astoundingly beautiful and the story is a compelling one of seduction, revenge, betrayal and the triumph of good over evil.
