"Mob stuff works so well for opera most of the time because you have this hierarchy of bosses and servants," artistic director Josh Shaw says about Pacific Opera Project's gangster-style adaptation of W.A. Mozart's darkly comic opera Don Giovanni. Maggie Green's vibrant costumes meld zoot-suit flair with the colorful, cartoonlike style of the film Dick Tracy, as charismatic vocalists Adrian Rosas, the ever-amusing E. Scott Levin and powerful soprano Daria Somers cavort across the expansive Vortex stage. "The set is enormous," Shaw says. "We were looking for a big, open space where we could do whatever we wanted. ... It's a production on top of a production, at least."
