Don Juan: no woman can resist him and every man wants to be him. He is charisma in the flesh. But things go wrong, and divine retribution exacts the ultimate price. This all-star cast, galvanized by James Levine’s passionate yet stylish conducting, brings to life one of the greatest of all operas. Sherrill Milnes is the magnetic Don and Leontyne Price the avenging Donna Anna. Irrepressible Teresa Stratas (Zerlina) is the peasant woman who can’t say “no” but can’t quite say “yes,” either.
