Don Giovanni was considered as the most personal opera for Mozart. Scenes from Don Giovanni were heavily featured in the infamous movie Amadeus (1984), which won eight Academy Awards. The Stone Guest scene is one of the most
spine-chilling scenes in the history of opera. However, the comic scenes and characters are also memorable.
In this co-production, faculty from the departments of Music and of Theatre, Dance, and Performance will join forces with the outstanding students to present one of the most powerful operas of all time.

Diane Paulus and based on the critically-acclaimed Academy Award-winning film, Finding Neverland tells the incredible story behind one of the world’s most beloved characters: Peter Pan.
Playwright J.M. Barrie struggles to find inspiration until he meets four young brothers and their beautiful widowed mother. Spellbound by the boys’ enchanting make-believe adventures, he sets out to write a play that will astound London theatergoers.
