Summary Star tenor Rolando Villazon goes on the trail of the story behind what is, arguably, the greatest opera ever written, Don Giovanni by Mozart. Rolando returns to the theatre in Prague where the premiere was performed and attempts to put together a recreation of the first night, where the composer, audience and cast unite for a unique historical event. Villazon talks about how his own love of opera was formed and examines how it was performed and received by audiences in the eighteenth century. The resulting film will provide a rich insight into every aspect of the performance, from the musicians and singers to the outfits worn by the audience and the price and business of selling tickets.
