DON GIOVANNI by MOZART, 1787
Don Giovanni music by Wolfgang Amadeus Mozart and libretto of Lorenzo da Ponte and Music 1787, a delicious opera example of Bel Canto music and melodrama
Don Giovanni (il dissoluto punito, ossia il Don Giovanni, literally The Rake Punished, or Don Giovanni) a great opera in two acts with music by WOLFGANG AMADEUS MOZART and with an Italian libretto by LORENZO DA PONTE. It was premiered in the Estates Theatre in Prague on OCTOBER 29, 1787. Da Ponte's libretto was billed like many of its time as dramma giocoso, a term that denotes a mixing of serious and comic action.
MOZART entered the work into his catalogue as an "opera buffa". Although sometimes classified as comic, it blends comedy, melodrama and supernatural elements.
The Danish philosopher Søren Kierkegaard wrote in his book Enten -- Eller (Either/Or) that Mozart's Don Giovanni is "a work without blemish, of uninterrupted perfection."The finale, in which Don Giovanni refuses to repent, has been a captivating philosophical and artistic topic for many writers including George Bernard Shaw, who in Man and Superman parodied the opera (with explicit mention of the Mozart score for the finale scene between the Commendatore and Don Giovanni).
As a staple of the standard operatic repertoire, it appears as number seven on Opera America's list of the 20 most-performed operas in North America.
