Courtship in Modern Seville

The Don courts Zerlina in Act I of Don Giovanni.
For your viewing pleasure, a piano performance of "La ci darem la mano", the famous duet from Act I of Mozart's Don Giovanni, in a new English translation by award-winning New York composer Glen Roven. The singers are Branch Field and Hallie Silverston. The performance was filmed at Urban Stages.

It's a really good, modern translation. Enjoy.

Critical Thinking in the Cheap Seats

Since 2007, Superconductor has grown from an occasional concert or CD review to a near-daily publication covering classical music, opera and the arts in and around NYC, with excursions to Boston, Philadelphia, and upstate NY. I am a freelance writer living and working in Brooklyn NY. And no, I'm not a conductor.
