: Opera on 3 Don Giovanni

Mozart's classic opera buffa live from the Theater an der Wien. The figure of a well-born, randy young man who tramples over the conventions of society in pursuit of his own pleasures is an ancient one, but it was a 16th-century Spanish monk who embodied these attributes in the figure of Don Juan, the philanderer of Seville. His intriguing version of the libidinous character in a setting where family honour and female virginity were almost as precious as religious beliefs appealed to Mozart, who was lucky in having the words of his opera provided by Lorenzo da Ponte - a man who could easily have drawn directly on his own experiences as a lothario for the plot, for he too had been chased out of more than one town when his amorous adventures with other men's wives and mistresses were discovered.
Vienna State Opera Chorus and Orchestra,conductor
Riccardo Muti
Act 1
8.05 The Lover Repeated
Tom Rosenthal considers the nature of Don Giovanni. and his relationships, with reference to interpretations by different directors and through the eyes of different writers.

There are more than 5 million programme listings in Genome. This is a historical record of the planned output and the BBC services of any given time. It should be viewed in this context and with the understanding that it reflects the attitudes and standards of its time - not those of today.
