- The Parrish Art Museum
's Opera and Ballet in Cinema series will present an encore screening of Mozart
's opera "Don Giovanni" on Sunday, January 8, at 2 p.m. The performance, which was originally telecast worldwide on opening night from Milan's Teatro alla Scala on December 7, runs 195 minutes with two intermissions. Tickets are $14 for Parrish members, $17 for nonmembers. Tickets to the opening night performance in Milan sold for as much as €2400.
"Don Giovanni," Mozart's bold, beguiling blend of comedy and drama, tells the tale of a proud, predatory nobleman and the women who are drawn to him. Conducted by Daniel Barenboim
, this star-studded production features Peter Mattei
as Don Giovanni, Anna Netrebko
as Donna Anna, and Bryn Terfel
as Don Giovanni's sidekick Leporello. Opera Today
praised the cast: "Anna Netrebko's performance was a tour de force of great emotional depth, haloed by exceptionally lustrous orchestral playing. Peter Mattei is sexy, and sings with alpha male confidence, but he expresses Don Giovanni's appeal on deeper levels. Bryn Terfel shows why he's a match for Mattei."
The Swedish-born Mattei is known for his performances of Mozart's bass-baritone roles and has played Don Giovanni at Staatsoper Berlin, the Opéra National de Paris, and at the Metropolitan Opera in New York. The San Francisco Chronicle has called Russian soprano Netrebko "the opera world's hottest female star." Welsh-born Terfel is widely acknowledged as the world's finest bass-baritone and a huge box office draw.
The Museum's programs are made possible, in part, with public funds from the New York State Council on the Arts, celebrating 50 years of building strong, creative communities in New York State's 62 counties, and the property taxpayers from the Southampton School District and the Tuckahoe Common School District.
