Scenes : 1. A Street near Donna Elvira 's house ; 2. The courtyard of Donna Anna 's palace at night; 3. A churchyard; 4. A room in Donna Anna 's palace ; 5. Don Giovanni 's supper room
Don Giovanni , a notorious libertine of Seville, has, in amorous pursuit of Donna Anna , killed the Commandant, her father, who came to her rescue. The rest of Act I and most of Act 11 is concerned withlGiovanni's intrigues and adventures.
The great scene which follows is that in which the statue of the dead commandant speaks words of warning to Giovanni, and is insolently invited by the unrepentant libertine to supper. The statue attends at the appointed hour and seizing Giovanni, drags him down into the infernal regions.

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.
Genome is a digitised version of the Radio Times from 1923 to 2009 and
is made available for internal research purposes only. You will need to
obtain the relevant third party permissions for any use, including use in
programmes, online etc.
This internal version of Genome, which includes all the magazine covers,
images and articles as well as the programme listings from the Radio
Times, is different to the version of BBC Genome that is available
externally/to the public. It is only available inside the BBC network.
