Don Juan as Bad Boy

On October 27, 2009 at 7:00pm, New York City Opera’s own Don Juan (bass-baritone Daniel Okulitch) in its new production of Don Giovanni, director Christopher Alden, and Esther Perel, a leading sexologist, will gather at the Museum of Sex for an intimate, provocative exchange on the Don Juan legend. They’ll explore history versus myth, the Don’s changing image, how Mozart’s Don Juan relates to the composer’s own lusty sexuality, City Opera’s new interpretation, and Don Juan in the 21st century.

  • Daniel Okulitch, bass-baritone
  • Esther Perel, couple therapist, author of Mating in Captivity: Unlocking Erotic Intelligence
  • Liora Maurer, pianist
  • Moderator: Cori Ellison, City Opera Dramaturg
