Opera in the Heights is ready to thrill audiences with history’s classic womanizer in Mozart’s Don Giovanni showing at Lambert Hall in the Houston Heights from January 31-February 9.

The plot begins as Don Giovanni’s servant Leporello opens the opera, complaining about having to stay up all night, waiting for his master to emerge from a house where he is up to no good. Finally the Don comes out with a wailing Donna Anna behind him. This wakes her father who comes out, assesses the situation, and comes after Don Giovanni with a sword.

Don Giovanni is described as a “perfect gem of an opera” with rich music, splendid arias and beautiful ensembles.

"Don Giovanni comes to life with the most diverse ensemble of guest artists the company has had to date and a fresh new setting of the story by Stephanie Havey making her Oh! debut," said Artistic Director Enrique Carreón-Robledo.

Brian Major and Adrian Rosas share the role of Don Giovanni in the company’s double cast system. Leporello is portrayed by Justin Hopkins and Jorge Martinez, while Michelle Johnson and Cassandra Black are the Donna Annas, Julia Cramer and Theodora Cottarel are the Donna Elviras, Cecilia Duarte and Kaitlyn Costello share the role of Zerlina, Trevor Martin and Justin Manalad are the Masettos, Zach Averyt and Mackenzie Whitney sing Don Octavio, and Daymon Passmore is the Commendatore.

Performance dates are January 31, February 1, 6, 7, 8 at 7:30 p.m. and February 2 and 9 at 2:00 p.m. Single ticket prices are $32-$59, senior tickets are $29-$51, and student tickets are $12 anytime in designated areas.

Evening performances begin at 7:30 pm and the matinees are at 2:00 pm at Lambert Hall, 1703 Heights Blvd. in the Houston Heights. For tickets, visit www.operaintheheights.org or call 713-861-5303.

Opera in the Heights, a professional regional company, exists to provide a stage for emerging performers and bring affordable opera to the Greater Houston Area. All operas are fully staged with orchestra and presented in the original language with English surtitles projected above the stage.
