Don Giovanni Vocal Score: The Libertine Punished, Or Don Juan : Opera Buffa in Two Acts
Romance, murder, and revenge "Don Giovanni" offers an ingenious blend of comic and tragic elements in recounting the adventures of a dashing libertine whose trail of seductions and abandonments leads (literally!) to hell. Mozart's masterpiece, a product of his inspired collaboration with poet Lorenzo da Ponte, premiered to public and critical acclaim in 1787. Since then, every great opera singer has assayed one or another of its leading roles, and audiences around the world have delighted in its charms.
