Episode Detail: Don Giovanni - The Metropolitan Opera Presents

“Don Giovanni” (baritone Bryn Terfel) swaggers his way to eternal damnation in this well-received production of Mozart's 1787 masterpiece. Soprano Renee Fleming is also featured in the enduring blend of satire, farce and tragedy (written with librettist Lorenzo da Ponte), which finds the sly cad on the run from angry women he has wronged and their equally angry menfolk. The Franco Zeffirelli production was taped in October 2000. James Levine conducts. Donna Elvira: Solveig Kringelborn. Zerlina: Hei-Kyung Hong. Don Ottavio: Paul Groves. Leporello: Ferruccio Furlanetto.
