Art, Opera, and Identity: an evening of visual and performance art featuring excerpts from Mozart’s Don Giovanni
UNLV Opera Theater and the Marjorie Barrick Museum of Art are pleased to present Art, Opera, and Identity, an evening of visual and performance art featuring excerpts from Mozart’s Don Giovanni on Thursday, May 3, 2018, 6:30 p.m. in the Museum's East Gallery.
Scenes from Don Giovanni are staged throughout the current exhibition, Plural, performed with specific inspiration from deliberately chosen art pieces that explore identity. Don Giovanni is Mozart’s pinnacle operatic work which explores the identity of an (often) over-romanticized lecherous nobleman who abuses multiple women, commits murder, and refuses all opportunities to change. UNLV Opera Theater’s carefully excerpted scenes turn the tables to focus on his victims.
