Essential Opera - Reading Together - Part 11

Don Giovanni is another one of Mozart's most famous operas. It is also one of the most-performed operas in the world.

A brief synopsis: "Don Giovanni, a young, arrogant, sexually promiscuous nobleman, abuses and outrages everyone else in the cast, until he encounters something he cannot kill, beat up, dodge, or outwit."

Some online resources:
- Synopsis, libretto, and full score
- Multiple arrangements (including ones for piano solo)
- Full production (from the 1954 Salzburg Festival)

Leave your comments and impressions below. And, don't forget to read the twelfth installment for next week.
