Tony Award–winning director of Broadway’s A View from the Bridge and West Side Story, Ivo van Hove makes a major Met debut with a new take on Mozart’s dark comedy, re-setting the familiar tale of deceit and damnation in an abstract architectural landscape. Yannick Nézet-Séguin conducts a star-studded cast led by baritone Peter Mattei as a magnetic Don Giovanni, alongside the Leporello of bass-baritone Gerald Finley, who takes over the title role later in the season. Soprano Ailyn Pérez, mezzo-soprano Isabel Leonard, and soprano Hera Hyesang Park make a superlative trio as Donna Anna, Donna Elvira, and Zerlina, and tenor Ben Bliss completes the principal cast as Don Ottavio.

A co-production of the Metropolitan Opera and Opéra National de Paris
