Live from Monte Carlo This Sunday, March 22 on Mozart’s Don Giovanni with Erwin Schrott and Sonya Yoncheva – Plus Free Replay for 180 Days


Live this Sunday, March 22, at 10:00 am EST, webcasts free from Opéra de Monte Carlo a new production of Mozart’s Don Giovanni starring bass-baritone Erwin Schrott in his signature role as the titular lothario. Also in the cast are Sonya Yoncheva as Donna Elvira, Patrizia Ciofi as Donna Anna and Adrian Sâmpetrean as Leporello, with Paolo Arrivabeni on the podium. This Monte Carlo Don Giovanni will be available for free replay for 180 days, twice as long as the usual free period. The U.K.’s Telegraph has said about Schrott that he has “proved himself to be a singer of considerable stature, with a lean, taut, focused voice and a dynamic musical style to match his charismatic stage presence. It’s a combination of qualities which makes him an electrifyingly sexy and potent Don Giovanni.”
