Mozart's Don Giovanni
Often considered Mozart's greatest opera. Don Giovanni (Don Juan), the infamous womanizer, makes one conquest after another until the ghost of Donna Anna's father, the Commendatore, (whom Giovanni killed) appears for dinner. He offers Giovanni one last chance to repent for his improprieties. He will not change his ways so he is sucked down into hell by evil spirits.
High drama, hysterical comedy, magnificent music.

Mozart's The Magic Flute
Mozart's final opera. This is a great example of Mozart's ability to cast a magical spell on an audience. From the opening scene of the Three Ladies putting a spell on a dragon, to the Queen of the Night aria in the palace, to the bird catcher Papageno, and Tamino and Pamina finally finding each other, The Magic Flute is a tour de force of vocal prowess and cunning storytelling for people of all ages.
