San Diego Opera’s Don Giovanni
This intense opera stuns as Giovanni stalks his latest conquest, a beautiful young bride. But he cannot escape his past sins – the daughter of the nobleman who he brutally murdered and a woman he carelessly left at the altar – or the ones who try valiantly to bring him to justice. In a shocking conclusion, we find out that the living are not the only ones who can seek vengeance.
