Widely regarded as one of the finest achievements of Classical operatic composition, Mozart's Don Giovanni is presented here in a sumptuous and authoritative hardback urtext edition.
Written by commission from the Prague impresario Pasquale Bondini in 1787, the opera is based upon a libretto by Lorenzo Da Ponte, the librettist responsible for both Le Nozze Di Figaro and, later, Cosi Fan Tutti. The première of Don Giovanni took place to great public and critical acclaim in Prague in October, 1787. A tangled and twisting tale of love, lust, mistaken identity and eventual doom, as Giovanni becomes the victim of his own misadventures.
