Don Giovanni, by Wolfgang Amadeus Mozart

'Psycho with a Seinfeldian Twist'

A master seducer - at least in his own mind - fails to seduce anybody.  And when he invites a statue to dinner, things simply get worse - he is dragged down by demons to hell.  And the remaining characters, self-absorbed as always, barely notice.

"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".
