New Petite Opera #metoo DON GIOVANNI is ripped straight from the headlines

Petite Opera announces its latest ambitious work, and incredible cast for upcoming Don Giovanni November 3-18, 2018


Petite Opera, making a name for itself with its updated translations and productions that connect with modern-day audiences, is proud to announce its upcoming #metoo Don Giovanni.  



In this world premier of Petite Opera's new English translation and setting, the seducer, Don Giovanni (Italian for “Don Juan”) is transported into modern day, and patterned after several unscrupulous characters in the news associated with the #metoo movement.  

Set on a present day Hollywood film lot, the action, seduction and struggles are told from the perspectives of the actresses, film crew, and associates of the Hollywood film producer “Donny G” as he abuses his power.  The story culminates in a powerful message that reflects our modern day intolerances and historical willingness to look the other way.
