Don Giovanni, perhaps more than any other opera, is all about the singing, and we had some superlative examples of that on this evening, led by the Elvira of Sky Ingram, who rose to every challenge of her fiendish music and made the most of the very interesting characterization she had been given. This Elvira is not the usual rather drippy, love-hungry donna but a whirlwind of a girl, all flaming red hair, determined gait and searing passions. Hers was the performance of the Summer Festival scene so far.
