After more than a year away from The Met: “Live in HD” transmissions due to the renovation of its theatre and other ongoing projects, The Clark Art Institute begins to play catch up on Saturday, November 19 at 1 pm with an encore performance of Don Giovanni in its newly renovated auditorium. Tickets are $25 ($22 Clark members; $18 students) and can be purchased online at clarkart.edu or by calling 413 458 0524. Run time is 3 hours, 45 minutes.

Here is the Berkshire on Stage preview with video clips of Mozart’s popular Don Giovanni, originally telecast on October 22, 2016.

Three charismatic singers, Simon Keenlyside, Ildar Abdrazakov, and Mariusz Kwiecien, share the role of the title hero, who goes to hell in a dazzling coup de théâtre. The ensemble of great Mozartean singers includes Isabel Leonard, Angela Meade, Matthew Polenzani, Marina Rebeka, Erwin Schrott, Ramón Vargas, and Paul Appleby. Fabio Luisi and Plácido Domingo conduct.
