Mozart's sublime tragic comedy offers boundless scope for directors. Kasper Holten shifts the emphasis from Don Giovanni's sex life into a darker place, showing Giovanni's womanizing as an attempt to stave off his own mortality. Each woman he seduces represents a life he could have had. Though it is a dark piece, Holten handles it all with a light touch.
