"Don Giovanni: Not PG-13" with Dr. Susan McClary

Posted on: May 11, 2021

Dr. Susan McClary discusses the ways in which the perception of Mozart’s works as “safe,” or otherwise perfect, affects our understanding of the deeper meanings and sense of beauty of his works, with a focus on Don Giovanni. This discussion was recorded as part of LA Opera Connects' professional development series for teachers, Opera for Educators, in February 2021. Dr. McClary is a professor of music and head of musicology at Case Western Reserve University.

This podcast addresses mature topics, and may not be suitable for all audiences.
