Mozart’s Don Giovanni is a milestone in opera literature. Mozart was the first in the barely 200-year-old history of opera to step outside the closed world of social conventions, the grip of mythological parables and exalted social morals, and openly step over moral platitudes. In his opera what is moral is approached from the sense of life, and without a shadow of doubt, Don Giovanni himself is the absolute hero of opera, a hero with whom it is possible, and worthwhile, to identify. Although Don Giovanni is condemned to eternal damnation, and Mozart – pressured by outsiders – supplemented the work with a moralizing finale, the work is still the overture to 19th- and 20th-century freedom of thought and the increasingly open expression of moral questioning.
