Harvard Speakers Bureau: Thomas Forrest Kelley - The First Night of Don Giovanni
This talk, with music and pictures, takes us to Prague for the premiere of Mozart’s new Don Juan opera, written for a company of singers that he knew and admired. It was a fascinating beginning to what is considered one of the finest operas ever written.
