An interview with the New York Opera Exchange, including members Justin Werner (Artistic Director), David Leibowitz (Conductor), and Nicholas Higgins (Baritone- Don Giovanni).

The Exchange is an opera company aimed to creating performance opportunities with orchestra for young emerging artists on the cusp of professional breakthrough. We spoke at length regarding the company's new production of Don Giovanni, which will be running until May 5th and listened to excerpts from past productions, including the Balcony Duet from Gounod's Faust Romeo and Juliet as well as the Act 1 finale of L'italiana in Algeri.
