The Summer Academy Opera of the Vienna Philharmonic: Don Giovanni

Opera productions are more than meets the eye (and ear): backstage technicians and under-stage musicians are just as decisive in an opera’s success as the title-role singers.  So, imagine the challenges facing last season’s Angelika Prokopp Summer Academy Opera of the Vienna Philharmonic: learn to work seamlessly together while keeping extraordinarily stringent social-distancing health precautions.  Well done crew: not one production member was exposed to Covid-19.  Moreover, their efforts to protect each other brought them together as an artistic family: according to casting agencies, such a superb production of Don Giovanni had not been produced in the past forty years.  Come welcome this Pandemic-era production’s protagonists to our show for a lesson on resilience.
