(The voice) of Truth and Goodness was higher in the end
Between the love of life and the fact of death ...The virtue .. The love .. The justice .. The conscience
I love this opera :) <3
صوت الحق و الخير كان اعلى في النهاية
ما بين عشق الحياة و حقيقة الموت ..
الفضيلة .. الحب .. العدالة .. الضمير
كانت اوبرا (دون جيوفاني) او (دون جوان) لموتسارت
و اللي صورت نهاية سيئة و بشعة حتى على المستوى الروحي و الديني لدون جوان ، قد يكون المقصود منها هنا مقصد معنوي فقط نتيجة لعذاب الضمير و

I think this is the Hamlet of operas.

I think Don Giovanni (the opera, not the character) makes an inquiry into whether the height of certain human emotions make sense. There are a multitude of serious emotions in the opera and they are believable, due to the music and the libretto, but the opera questions each nevertheless. Inquires about the multitude of emotions.

Watch the opera while reading this as the humor is actually great, you just usually need the visual to get it fully.

This review is about the "Don Giovanni" opera in the Czech National Marionette Theatre.

I would like to write a review about "Don Giovanni". Basically, Don Giovanni is an opera that consists of two acts, and it was made in 1787 by Wolfgang Amadeus Mozart. To be specific, Mozart was a person who only composed the opera. It was Lorenzo Da Ponte who actually made the script for this opera.
From now on, I will describe the summary of this play. "Don Giovanni" who is the main character of this play,

Ok, so, I didn't actually read this. But I just saw it, and I feel like that counts for something.
The libretto is hardly ever the chief virtue of an opera, and Don Giovanni is no exception. Regardless of its dubious ~literary merit~, I loved this opera, with all of its ridiculous melodrama and bawdy humor (he had 1,003 girls in Spain!!).
The ending was SO WILD. Like, by some turn of events, Don Giovanni ends up in a ghostly statuary, and then this statue starts talking, then he invites the statue

Great story and would be great to see as an operatic performance, but I don't recommend reading the libretto. It's just like reading a bunch of repetitive song lyrics.

Gelesen zu Schulzeiten, als Vergleich mit Frischs Don Juan oder die Liebe zur Geometrie. Gefällt mir wesentlich besser als Frisch, sehr amüsant geschrieben.

One of the best operas, Don Giovanni is one of the most interesting versions of the Don Juan story. Although it was a fail in Vienna, it was a success in Prague! Go da Ponte/Mozart!
