Mozart’s Don Giovanni was inspired by the legend of Don Juan. Aided by his servant Leporello, Don Giovanni grows increasingly reckless. When he attacks Donna Anna and accidentally kills her father, she swears vengeance. Together with her betrothed Don Ottavio and Donna Elvira, Don Giovanni’s neglected lover, she pursues him relentlessly until the Don eventually begins to fail in his schemes.
