Don Giovanni

“As the story’s scorned single lady, Elvira is just as outraged as Anna, but in her own way. She’s out for revenge and takes it by showing up at all the wrong moments to foil Don Giovanni’s attempts at further seductions. Both roles call for intense performances, and both received them in this production. Elvira’s anguish sears the scenes in which she appears; there’s raw emotion in her angular interjections.”
