Mozart re-imagined

Pull up a seat to the table and break bread with The Family 8 p.m. Friday and Saturday in Promenade Hall at the Overture Center, 201 State St. You’ll be immersed in the action as the all-female mafia of “The Sopranos” plot for revenge against the rat who has pushed The Family too far in Fresco Opera Theatre’s re-imagining of Mozart’s “Don Giovanni.” Table seating is $50/person. If you prefer not to have the blood of the Don on your hands, you can just sit back and watch the action for $35/person.
