Donna Elvira

don giovanni

Minnesota Opera

Don Giovanni is an egotistical and infamous womanizer, brazen in his shameless seductions. But his betrayals soon catch up to him when divine retribution exacts the ultimate price. From the world’s most well-known composer, Mozart’s opera seamlessly blends dark comedy with biting social commentary in this smart and otherworldly story of a man who dares to defy hell itself. Ms. Gartland makes her role and company debut with Minnesota Opera in the role of Donna Elvira.
