"Don Giovanni in 2010" Bad Orb Things to Do Tip by Nemorino
Bad Orb Things to Do: 7 reviews and 10 photos
The twenty-fourth summer production of the Opera Academy in Bad Orb was Don Giovanni by Wolfgang Amadeus Mozart (1756-1791).
Don Giovanni was the eighteenth of Mozart's twenty-one operas, composed in 1787 when he was thirty-one years old, four years before his death.
The libretto by Lorenzo Da Ponte (1749-1838) is the story of a Spanish nobleman (Don Juan in Spanish), who claimed to have seduced hundreds of women: 640 in Italy, 520 in France, 200 in Germany, and 1003 in Spain.
We learn these exact numbers in the opera because Leporello, his servant, sings them in his famous register aria in the first act.
This is also the final count, because in the opera itself not a single attempt is successful, and at the end Don Giovanni dies, unrepentant.
