TARPON SPRINGS – New Century Opera will present Mozart’s Don Giovanni Friday through Sunday, Dec. 6-8, at Tarpon Springs Performing Arts Center, 324 Pine St.

Performances will be Friday, 7 p.m.; and Saturday and Sunday, 2 p.m. Tickets are $24 and $20 for students and members. Call 942-5605 or visit TarponArts.org.

The opera is sung in English. Director Constantine Grame brings the New Century Opera production to the stage.

Wolfgang Amadeus Mozart’s Don Giovanni explores the Spanish legend of Don Juan, the world’s most notorious womanizer. Don Giovanni is the second of the three great operas Mozart wrote in collaboration with librettist Lorenzo da Ponte, with its first premiere at the Prague Opera in 1787. The opera is the most famous telling of the story of Don Juan. Set in the 17th century, the opera, which was subtitled “dramma giocoso,” meaning “playful drama,” masterfully combines uproarious comedy with moments of genuine tragedy. It is host to some of Mozart’s most genius melodies: the famous duet “Là ci darem la mano” and Don Giovanni’s heart-melting serenade, “Deh vieni alla finestra.” Don Giovanni is the consummate philanderer, but after several attempted seductions go awry, he becomes the target of three vengeful women who are determined to see him pay for his womanizing ways. An insolent invitation and a supernatural intervention seal his fate.

The cast features Christopher Holloway as Don Giovanni, Chris Romeo as Don Ottavio, Kevin Nickorick as Leporello, John Short as The Commandant and Masetto, Linda L. Hines as Donna Anna, Rachael Marino as Donna Elvira and Megan Schmidt as Zerlina.
