John Frayne sits down with Nathan Gunn to talk about his debut as an opera director in Lyric Theatre @ Illinois’ production of Mozart's Don Giovanni.

On top of his directorial duties, Gunn will also sing the part of Don Giovanni in the first three performances of the production’s run (February 22, 23, and 24). While the Grammy-winning baritone is no stranger to the role—performing as Don Giovanni in Vienna last year—this will be his first performance in an opera at Krannert Center for the Performing Arts since he was a student at the University of Illinois.

Note: We suggest sticking around until the end… we hear there is a Don Giovanni joke, told by John Frayne.
