The Metropolitan Opera’s production of Mozart’s Don Giovanni has opened to rave reviews for Luca Pisaroni’s interpretation of the charming and clever Leporello, one of his signature roles:
“ . . . this performance was, overall, the best sung . . . with the Leporello of the vibrant bass-baritone Luca Pisaroni. He conveys the character’s bungling awkwardness. Yet Mr. Pisaroni’s natural charm comes through, lending Leporello a touch of swagger.”
