What is the story?
Accompanied by his long-suffering servant Leporello, infamous philanderer Don Giovanni is drawn into a whirlwind of lust and revenge of his own making when his promiscuous and arrogant actions meet their match. After wronging the likes of the feisty Donna Elvira, the woeful Donna Anna (whose father he kills in a duel), and the impressionable Zerlina, his day of reckoning approaches when the ghost of his victim seeks revenge. Don Giovanni has a multitude of memorable musical moments including the imposing Overture, the Catalogue Aria, the Champagne Aria and the Dalla Sua Pace Aria.
