Don Giovanni [For The Modern Times]
An Italian to English translation of the Opera scenes from “Don Giovanni” by Wolfgang Amadeus Mozart to make the main character more understood.
A translation of the Opera scenes from “Don Giovanni” by Wolfgang Amadeus Mozart. From Kyle’s experience, this opera is very misunderstood by the opera community. It paints its main character as a God, but he does hideous things. Kyle wants to show who he really is.
The opera was first performed on 29 October 1787 in Prague. Kyle has had a passion for Opera music since he was 12 years old. Kyle has also been doing playwriting and directed plays before.
