Mozart’s Don Giovanni has all the hallmarks of his legendary literary counterpart: a freewheeling hedonist and serial lover with 2,065 alleged amorous conquests copiously recorded by his servant Leporello. In the space of 24 hours, the Don kills a man, attempts a few more seductions and willingly faces eternal punishment rather than repent. CCM Professor of Opera and renowned director Nic Muni calls his staging a “re-imagination,” setting it in 18th century Seville. Known for his edgy interpretations, Muni and his production staff explore social and economic constraints that were even more restrictive in Spain. Fortunately, Muni hasn’t forgotten that Don Giovanni is a “dramma giocosa” — a comic drama with memorable music, including Leporello’s “Catalog Aria.” Double casting means more opportunities to hear CCM’s extraordinary range of vocal talent. Thursday-Sunday. $17-$29.
