The Director of the Italian Cultural Institute Andrea Raos is pleased to invite you to 

Roundtable Discussion on Don Giovanni by W. A. Mozart
Tuesday, October 7th 6:00 PM
Italian Cultural Institute

Join us for a roundtable discussion on Lyric Opera of Chicago's current production of Don Giovanni with Marina Rebeka (Donna Anna), Antonio Poli (Don Ottavio), and Andrea Silvestrelli (Commendatore). Moderated by musicologist Jesse Rosenberg, Northwestern University.

With a list of conquests longer than a phonebook, Don Giovanni travels the world, snaring princesses and peasant girls alike. This time, his victim is the virtuous Donna Anna. And when her father tries to save her, the Don murders him. But the lecherous killer has finally gone too far - and his victims want revenge. Dark comedy blends seamlessly with biting social commentary in a rip-roaring story that tantalizes with its ambiguities.

This event is free and open to the public. A reception will follow.
