In one of Mozart's most popular operas, Don Giovanni is a Spanish nobleman renowned throughout Europe as a seducer of women; Leporello, his servant, reluctantly aids him by keeping watch. In Seville Giovanni attempts to rape Donna Anna, who chases out the intruder. Her father, the Commendatore, challenges Giovanni to a fight and is killed. Anna and her lover, Don Ottavio, vow revenge on the unknown murderer. Leporello's attempts to persuade his master to reform are interrupted by Donna Elvira, a former mistress of Giovanni's, who has pursued him to Seville. Giovanni makes his excuses and escapes her, leaving Leporello to explain the extent of his master's womanizing.

Masetto and his bride Zerlina are to be married at a peasant wedding near Giovanni's villa, but Giovanni sets himself to seduce Zerlina. Elvira interrupts and foils Giovanni's attempt. Ottavio and Anna appeal to Giovanni for help in their pursuit of the murderer of Anna's father. Elvira again interrupts and warns Ottavio and Anna about Giovanni's true nature; Anna recognizes Giovanni as the murderer. Leporello discusses with Giovanni the plans for the masked ball his master is hosting that evening. Zerlina, reunited with Masetto, assures him that Giovanni has not touched her. Elvira joins forces with Ottavio and Anna; they have been invited to the ball and intend to exact vengeance on Giovanni. While everyone is dancing at the ball Giovanni attempts to ensnare Zerlina, but is stopped by her. She rallies all behind her to try to entrap Giovanni. All accuse him, but he and Leporello elude them.
