BOSTON BAROQUE returns to Mozart’s seminal opera, "DON GIOVANNI," with a new production starring Sidney Outlaw in the titular role. 

"DON GIOVANNI," a young, arrogant, and sexually promiscuous nobleman, abuses and outrages everyone else in the cast until he encounters something he cannot kill, beat up, dodge, or outwit.

This new production of "DON GIOVANNI" will be led by conductor and Founding Music Director Martin Pearlman, and marks BOSTON BAROQUE's first collaboration with Stage Director Chuck Hudson (Pittsburgh Opera, Seattle Opera). 

In "DON GIOVANNI," as with other BOSTON BAROQUE operas, the audience will experience the orchestra as central to the action. 

As the first period instrument orchestra established in North America, BOSTON BAROQUE pioneered a style of opera presentation that has continued to develop over 50 years. 

The orchestra occupies center stage while the action of the singers—costumed, with sets and lighting designed specifically for the performance—takes place around it.

"DON GIOVANNI," the infamous libertine and antihero of Mozart’s opera, has been a captivating character for centuries. 

DON GIOVANNI's hedonistic pursuits, disregard for societal norms, and unapologetic behavior have intrigued audiences. 

Like famous athletes and performers in the news today, DON GIOVANNI exploits his superstar status to the fullest. 

His escapades are splashed across tabloids, and he revels in the attention. 

His fans adore him, even when he pushes boundaries. 

His encounters are fueled by lust, power, and the thrill of breaking societal norms. 

DON GIOVANNI leaves a trail of broken hearts and scandalous headlines.

The world-renown cast features the return of Susanna Phillips to the BOSTON BAROQUE stage.

Hudson has assembled a world-class crew for the production, including projection designer Greg Emetaz (New York City Opera, Washington National Opera) and costume designer Daniel Cole (NYU, FIT). 

They are joined by GBH Production Group’s in-house crew, including Lighting Designer Fred Young

Livestream Director Matthew Principe (Metropolitan Opera, Detroit Opera) will bring the story to life for virtual audiences.

There are also company debuts for Patrick Carfizzi and Michelle Bradley.

BOSTON BAROQUE will perform the original Prague version of Mozart’s opera, 38 years after performing the American period instrument premiere of the work in 1986.

Approximately three hours, 20 minutes with one intermission


The six-time GRAMMY®-nominated BOSTON BAROQUE is the first permanent Baroque orchestra established in North America and, according to Fanfare Magazine, is widely regarded as “one of the world’s premier period instrument bands." 

The ensemble produces lively, emotionally charged, groundbreaking performances of Baroque and Classical works for today’s audiences performed on instruments and using performance techniques that reflect the eras in which the music was composed.
