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
