Dallas — In the Dallas Opera's current production of Mozart's Don Giovanni, directed by Robert Falls originally for the Lyric Opera of Chicago, bass Morris Robinson plays a role he has taken on before, the Commendatore. It's a small role, but a pivotal one. He is the father of one of Giovanni's lovers, Donna Anna. Giovanni kills him, and then the Commendatore turns into a statue and eventually drags Giovanni into hell.

In this audio interview, Gregory Sullivan Isaacs chats with Robinson about his voice, the role and working with Dallas Opera. Click on the play button and enjoy; you might have to adjust the volume on your computer/device.

The final performances of Don Giovanni are 7:30 p.m. Friday, April 27; and 2 p.m. Sunday, April 29 at the Winspear Opera House.
