FREE for the month of March! BrottOpera’s ground breaking 2020 virtual production gained national media attention: First, it was conceived, directed, rehearsed, performed from the living rooms of its cast and crew. Secondly, director Anna Theodosakis gave the plotline of Mozart’s masterpiece a modern, feminist twist — the women stepped out of their roles to voice their stories and refused to be victimized by Don Giovanni’s lecherous behaviour and objectification of his female conquests. “This provided me a great opportunity to insert monologues performed by the three women of the story,” said Theodosakis. “Our production emphasizes a survivor first narrative and having subjective narration from the female characters enhances this concept.” The result was what critic David Perlman called “really effective, driven by the characters’ eyes all the time.”
Sung in Italian with English Surtitles
