Approximate running time 3 hrs. 20 min.
The magnetic Peter Mattei is Don Giovanni, performing alongside the starry ensemble of Elza van den Heever, Emma Bell, and Luca Pisaroni. New York Philharmonic Music Director Alan Gilbert crosses the Lincoln Center Plaza to conduct.
"Mr. Mattei is a commanding Giovanni: tall, impetuous and charged with
sexuality: He can bend a phrase with seductive legato.
He is well matched with the Leporello of the vibrant bass baritone Luca Pisaroni..." Elza van den Heever is "a vocally splendid and poignantly confused Donna Anna. Her singing is agile and focused, yet luminous and penetrating." (The New York Times)
"The Met's production, directed by Michael Grandage, is aptly set in the opera's own era, and Grandage captures its implications with an extraordinary dramatic clarity that's equally the work of the splendid cast of singers." (The New Yorker)
