Date: December 2, 2007

To: Don Giovanni Orchestra Members
Subject: Feather

Please know that the production department is making every endeavor to change the staging so that the feather does not end up in the pit.

However, as the nightly performance conditions change, it is possible that this may continue to happen. In the event that the feather does fall into the orchestra pit, it will fall in Act I, at approximately the end of #8, Donna Elvira’s aria Fuggi il traditor.

Thank you.
