Lorenzo Da Ponte
Don Juan (Spanish), Don Giovanni (Italian) is a legendary, fictional libertine. Although
the various iterations of the Don Juan myth show some variation, the basic story
remains the same. Don Juan is portrayed as a wealthy, seductive libertine who
devotes his life to seducing women, taking great pride in his ability to seduce women
of all ages and stations in life. Don Giovanni, an opera composed by Mozart with
libretto by Lorenzo da Ponte, is arguably the best-known version.
