Seattle, you beautiful city. Though you're among our longest-standing and most loyal cities, you've yet to try one of the sweetest fruits of the Groupmuse Tree: The Massivemuse. A Massivemuse is a scaled up groupmuse - we find a nice big space, keep it cozy and boozy, and we groupmuse in the Grand Style, celebrating the scope of the community we've all built together.

And now, we're grateful to announce that the Seattle Massivemuse dry spell has come to an end, and who better to end it than the whiz kids at Operamuse! *Operamuse *is one of the sublime organic creations of the Groupmuse-iverse. Completely independent of Groupmuse HQ, two brilliant Seattleites, Mike and Sammie, started Operamuse, whereby they take a beloved masterpiece of the operatic repertoire, scale it down to living room size, translate and update the script, and bring a centuries-old work right into the present moment, to share in Groupmuse living rooms all around your city.

They've done over half a dozen of these, all of which have been runaway successes, and now, they're taking the project to the Massivemuse stage, with what is arguably the greatest opera ever written: W. A. Mozart's Don Giovanni.

A cautionary tale about the most reprehensible Casanova in the history of literature, Don Giovanni has a resonance now, in our #MeToo moment, like it never has before. And Operamuse has done a splendid job bringing it up to the present, casting the wretched Don G. as an Axe-drenched frat bro, living out his depraved fantasies across college campuses all over.

But be forewarned, adult language and themes make this an R-rated, trigger-laden evening. But for all of the the weight that the subject matter entails, it'll be a worthy meditation on one of the defining struggles of our age -- and of ages past. Moreover, the music is great beyond description or belief.
