Don Giovanni is often lauded as one of the greatest operas ever composed. Mozart’s exquisite music masterfully shadows the conniving but captivating Don, aided by his loyal servant, Leporello, in his quest to conquer all of the beautiful women he encounters, no matter what tragic consequences loom on the horizon. In this contemporary staging of Mozart’s tragi-comic masterpiece, JLO showcases the talents of Director Paul Shipper, Conductor William Todd Hunt, and an extraordinary cast of singers from New York City, Los Angeles, Baltimore, Juneau, Sitka and the Pacific Northwest, for what is sure to be an unforgettable operatic experience. Performances are in Italian, with supertitles, at the JACC on April 24th and 25th, 2015, and at the Sitka PAC on May 1st and 2nd, 2015.

Amahl and the Night Visitors
December 11, 12, 13 & 18, 19, 20, 2015
One of the most popular operas of all time, Amahl and the Night Visitors tells the story of how a crippled, young shepherd boy’s life changes forever when he sees an amazing star “as big as a window.”
When three foreign kings following the star in their search for a wondrous child encounter Amahl and his mother, the result is a timeless and inspiring message of how faith, charity, unselfish love and good deeds can work miracles.
