Dancing Thru

Don Giovanni

Hit up the latest at Opera San Jose, last night: Mozart's Don Giovanni. Marilyn couldn't make it, so we picked up
chaoswolf to go instead. Great opera, great music, great vocals, though I could have argued minor points of direction in the general production. Great costuming. I'm always amused, though, when you get an entire aria, and the supertitles sum it up with something like "I want revenge." What's that line, "I can't understand a word, even when it's in English" from Christine Lavin? Just fall into the mood, and enjoy. You can make up your own words.
