Filmed on location in picturesque Vicenza, Italy, Wolfgang Amadeus Mozart's operatic masterpiece "Don Giovanni" is beautifully translated to film by director Joseph Losey ("The Servant") and Mozart's incomparable music is performed by the legendary Paris opera, conducted by Lorin Maazel. Set in Seville in the 1600s, a young nobleman Don Giovanni (Ruggero Raimondi) is well-known philanderer with a long list of amorous conquests. After he attempts to seduce the beautiful Donna Anna (Edda Moser), her father's battle to protect her honor ends in tragedy. Anna and her fiance Don Octavio (Kenneth Riegel) pledge to seek revenge, while Giovanni continues to charm and trick the local women. The stellar cast also includes masterful opera stars John Macurdy as The Commendatore, Kiri Te Kanawa as Donna Elvira, Jose Van Dam as Leporello, Teresa Berganza as Zelina and Malcolm King as Massetto. The magnificent setting of a 16th-century mansion, incredible costumes and Vicenza's mysterious canals make this film version of "Don Giovanni" a triumph.
