About Don Giovanni:

W. A. Mozart's Don Giovanni is regarded as one of the greatest operas of all time. With its constant stream of spellbinding arias and ensembles, this opera is a regular of opera houses. Its achievements in terms of musical beauty, vocal challenge and dramatic insight remain unsurpassed.

Mozart and his Italian librettist Lorenzo da Ponte, approach the famous Andelusian legend of Don Juan in operatic form. In their characteristic ingenuity, they infuse depth of character in both their written and musical descriptions, while criticizing the current social norms and roles. Many writers and philosophers have written about various controversies generated by the content of this opera.
