The 83rd Season from the Florentine continues with W.A. Mozart’s Don Giovanni.
The quintessential rake, Don Giovanni, a womanizing scoundrel, executes his devious conquests and hijinks only to be called by the fates for his transgressions. Da Ponte’s libretto and Mozart’s brilliant score reveal the human condition and all its foibles. The Florentine is pleased to produce this revival of its 2006 production, which won rave reviews in Milwaukee and cities across the country. This Florentine production is directed by John Hoomes, under the baton of the Florentine’s Joseph Rescigno with Scenic Design by Kris Stone and Lighting Design by the Florentine’s Noele Stollmack.
Join us for the Talk Opera event in the Anello Atrium one hour prior to the performance:
Corliss Phillabaum, Professor of Theater at UW Milwaukee’s Peck School of the Arts, talks about Don Giovanni in-depth one hour before curtain prior to each mainstage performance for all ticket holders. Professor Phillabaum keeps Florentine audiences returning for his unique perspective at each opera’s lecture.
Talk Opera is FREE with each ticket purchase.
This production and recording is made possible with major support from Wisconsin Arts Board with funds from NEA Artworks and Milwaukee County CAMPAC.
Title Artist Sponsor: Nita Soref.

A NEW PLAY FOR OUR TIMES
An ace fighter pilot finds herself grounded when an unexpected pregnancy puts her career on hold. When she returns to the pilot’s seat, she finds that she’s now part of the “chair force,” flying drones and dropping bombs on enemy combatants in Afghanistan from the comfort of an air conditioned trailer in Las Vegas. In this gripping, ripped-from-the-headlines new play, we find that hunting terrorists by day and being a mother by night may be this top gun’s toughest assignment yet.

CELEBRATE A LOCAL LEGEND
Few names trigger more memories and smiles in Milwaukee than Al McGuire, Marquette University’s legendary basketball coach. Many know him for leading the Warriors to the NCAA Championship and for his candid television personality, but few knew him like his broadcasting partner—Emmy Award-winner Dick Enberg. Just in time for March Madness, McGuire is a touching portrait of the uncommonly funny and profound man behind the legend.

A GREAT AMERICAN CLASSIC
Faded southern belle Amanda frets constantly over her two live-in adult children—the painfully shy Laura and her restless poet brother, Tom. After great prodding, Tom brings home a possible suitor for Laura, but an unknown truth causes shockwaves in the family unraveling the delicate fantasies that keep them going. Director Mark Clements reunites with 10-time Joseph Jefferson Award-winner Hollis Resnik, who wowed Rep audiences as Judy Garland in End of the Rainbow, for a new production of this American classic that made Tennessee Williams a household name.
