Music Director Alan Gilbert will conduct The Metropolitan Opera's Don Giovanni next season, The Met announced on February 12. Peter Mattei will sing the title role.
In 2008 Mr. Gilbert led John Adams's Dr. Atomic at The Met. In 2012 the DVD won the Grammy for Best Opera Recording.
Fred Plotkin, on WQXR's Operavore blog, said: "I am thrilled that Alan Gilbert will cross Lincoln Center Plaza from the New York Philharmonic for Don Giovanni. He did fine work on John Adams’s Dr. Atomic a few years ago."
