Don Giovanni, one of Mozart's most famous operas, tells Don Giovanni's fatal story of sex, murder, deception, and criminality. Don Giovanni, a young, arrogant, and sexually promiscuous nobleman, abuses and outrages everyone he encounters as he lives a life of ultimate debauchery. Completely self-absorbed, Don Giovanni takes whatever he wants, especially when that encompasses beautiful women, and leaves a trail of destruction in his wake. When the victims of his actions begin to seek justice, Don Giovanni uses all of his wit and cunning to escape the repercussions, until he encounters something he cannot kill, beat up, dodge, or outwit. Explore the space of the Mausoleum and the surrounding trails and woods as dusk turns to night and the characters of Don Giovanni weave in and out of the shadows, performing and engaging with you. This is an unforgettable night of interactive opera. Tickets on sale while supplies last.
Get involved in live theatre on campus! Enjoy the witty, clever lyrics and music of the classically hilarious and eternally popular Gilbert & Sullivan. (Don't know Gilbert & Sullivan? Trust us, they're worth googling.) If you think the mirth is limited to onstage shenanigans, wait until you experience our backstage antics and parties. Since we produce two shows per year, there are plenty of acting and staff opportunities in all departments. We're one of three G&S light opera troupes in the Bay Area and known for being a "learning while doing" theatre troupe. The Savoyards have been an operettic training ground for over 40 years and have successfully trained many amateurs who've gone on to fulfill their musical theatre dreams. In recent years, we have become known for our fresh, innovative stagings of traditional G&S works. (After all, we can't let the Gilbert & Sullivan societies at Harvard, MIT, Yale, Brown, University of Michigan, and Rice have all of the fun!)
