Stylish Seville: Fashion Inspiration for Opening Night of Don Giovanni

Fashion inspiration for what to wear to the Red Carpet Opening Night of Don Giovanni. For more inspiration, visit The Metropolitan Opera's tumblr featuring photos by Rose Callahan: Last Night at the Met. From hoodies and pink hair, to gorgeous top hats, gowns, and even period attire, the colorful diversity of opera patrons is beautifully displayed in this blog.    

Don Giovanni, Mozart's Bad Boy, is soon to ride into McCaw Hall (on a motorcycle, in fact!). 

If you love style; if you love the arts, you don’t want to miss opening night at the opera! On Saturday, October 18th, come dressed to impress with your own take on Nights in Spain. You could do black lace, a sexy leather jacket, red lips or who knows—perhaps even some flamenco ruffles—we're paying homage to Giovanni's Seville setting!  

Check out everyone’s red-carpet style before the show and during intermission, and enjoy the kickoff performance of Seattle Opera’s 2014/15 season. Mozart’s portrait of an unrepentant Casanova, Don Giovanni, has fascinated audiences since its 1787 premiere. To this day it endures as opera’s ultimate cautionary tale about the human cost of unbridled lust. Featuring varied, evocative, and absolutely glorious music from overture to epilogue, a dynamic set of distinctively drawn characters, and a shocking, unforgettable finale, “the Don” stands apart as Mozart’s boldest masterpiece.

We recommend you arrive at McCaw Hall early (doors open at 5 p.m.). Walk the red carpet as our photographer snaps a photo, and don’t forget to post your fabulous style on Twitter, Instagram and Facebook using hashtag #MozartsBadBoy. (Share with us @SeattleOpera).

Don Giovanni runs for seven performances from October 18 – November 1st. For more information, please visit
