Matthew Baird of CBC Music reports:
The lecherous Don Juan is back in town. He's a serial womanizer of the worst sort, and a murderer to boot, but still charming and, well, kind of fun to have around. His conquests take on comic proportions in Mozart's playfully dramatic opera Don Giovanni.
Baritone Gerald Finley stars in the title role with Andrew Davis (conductor laureate of the Toronto Symphony Orchestra) on the podium. Bryn Terfel will be heard in the role of Leporello, and the cast of refined Mozarteans also includes Marina Rebeka, Ellie Dehn, Isabel Leonard, Matthew Polenzani, Shenyang, and James Morris.
