Don Giovanni

Mozart's Don Giovanni blends melodrama, dark action, and comedy. I think you probably have to see it in person to find it comic - just listening to it, Don Giovanni seems like the worst kind of human being. Cleveland Opera's production was beautiful nonetheless.

Here, I have depicted a scene from the first act: a wedding party proceeding through a plaza in front of Don Giovanni's castle. Don Giovanni stands to welcome them into his home (with nefarious intent, of course).
