Pleasure Has Its Price

Fleeing the scene of his crime, a lecherous nobleman commits a heinous murder—an act so depraved that it unleashes the vengeance of hell itself.

The Mozart-Da Ponte trilogy concludes in a post-apocalyptic future with Don Giovanni, an opera that masterfully blends dark comedy with even darker deeds.

Bertrand de Billy conducts Mozart’s propulsive score. Starring Étienne Dupuis, Luca Pisaroni, Adela Zaharia, and Carmen Giannattasio.

Why You Should See It

It’s a dark comedy about what happens when a Don Juan goes too far—with a twist ending straight out of cult horror flicks like Drag Me to Hell or Night of the Demon.
