Don Giovanni, a.k.a. Don Juan, is the legendary "love-em-and leave-em" scoundrel of history and opera. Set in Spain in the 1600s, Don Giovanni chronicles the lover's conquests, said to have numbered in the thousands. Understandably, those he seduced and abandoned are bent on vengeance. He is pursued by past conquests plus the ghost of the Commendatore he killed in a duel as the nobleman fought to save his daughter's virtue. When the ghost demands that he repent and reform, the Don brazenly refuses and is consumed by the fires of hell. In the end, virtue vanquishes vice.
