FM Opera's Don Giovanni (Part 1)

FM Opera

Maria Sensi Sellner, the Conductor of the opera, talks with the Director and their Don Giovanni and Zerlina.

This interview talks about this production (which makes Don Giovanni a tech entrepreneur). Conductor Maria Sensi Sellner talks with Director Austin Regan (a Fargo native) and the actor who plays Don Giovanni, Khary "K.F. Jacques" Laurent, and Anna Hashizume, who plays Zerlina.

From FM Opera
Widely regarded as the greatest opera ever written, prepare to enter the corrupt & wicked world of DON GIOVANNI(better known as Don Juan), a ladies’ man with no scruples who's determined to break as many hearts as possible. As the discarded women of his past unite to speak out against their offender, Don Giovanni seems destined to meet his fiery fate. Set in the present-day world of technology giants, this edgy & exciting twist is sure to capture the essence of the Original Playboy!

This production allows us to introduce two dynamic artists to our stage for the first time: baritone & rap-artist Khary "K. F. Jacques" Laurent in the title role & soprano Takesha Meshé Kizart as "Donna Anna". In addition, we welcome back several former Gate City Bank Young Artists. Fargo native Director Austin Regan brings his special creative genius to this production joined by Maria Sensi Sellner in her debut with FM Opera!
