Comic opera in three acts | Text by the composer | Playing time ca. 2 3/4 hours | One intermission

Officer Johann Jacob Casanova de Seingalt is the ­ultimate ladies’ man. And on the Islands of Murano, he’s the cause of plenty of bewilderment for the fairer sex. Casanova premiered in Leipzig in 1841, and ­showed Lortzing as a true theater person. Although it was ­billed as a comedy, the show struck a socially ­critical chord (one of the reasons it quickly disappeared from the repertoire). Despite its lack of renown, like Zar und ­Zimmermann before it and Der Wildschütz after it, ­Casanova counts as one of Lortzing’s masterpieces.
