Opera Through the Looking Glass: Domme & Giovanni


About The Show

Mozart's tale of consequence for a cruel, conscienceless man gets a sexy, contemporary, darkly comedic update in Domme & Giovanni. Anna, the most desired and respected domme in town, has built her life around getting revenge on Giovanni, the local Mafia Don, and the man who killed her father. She teams up with Elvira, an FBI Agent who has centered her career around bringing Giovanni to justice. Leporello has made a life-supporting Giovanni through thick and thin but dreams of quiet retirement. And Giovanni stands at the center of it all, including the mythos he has built inside his mind.

The Inspiration

A fresh, non-European, non-white and non-male perspective on revered works

Is beautiful music enough to justify the problematic, bizarre and murderous depictions of women and other marginalized people in classic operas? Enter “Opera Through the Looking Glass,” a new series of 60-minute productions that retell the stories of canonical operas by turning them on their heads. Join us this spring for the second “Opera Through the Looking Glass” production: a reimagined Don Giovanni by composer Ryan Oldham and writers Liz Oldham and Cerise Lim Jacobs. Please join us for a romp through this dark comedy we've created. You will not look at the Don the same way again!
