Don Giovanni, by Wolfgang Amadeus Mozart
'Psycho with a Seinfeldian Twist'

"Opera for the People" is a lecture series run by Larry Oppenheim. He is President of the Kensington Symphony Orchestra in the East Bay, where he is co-principal oboe and solo English horn, and writes the program notes. Larry's goal is to make classical music more enjoyable and accessible to "all the people".
