What will it take to stop the notorious Don Giovanni from his pursuit of all women? Only intervention from beyond the grave can make Don Giovanni pay for his lecherous escapades! Mozart’s “perfect opera” is both comical and terrifying as it follows the misdeeds of the infamous seducer and his final doom.
