Product Description

As hosted by {opera} star {$Sir Thomas Allen}, this unusual, offbeat documentary rests on the adage that the key to understanding {$Wolfgang Amadeus Mozart}'s incessant philandering lies in his seminal 1787 opera {+Don Giovanni}, and in the main character from that opus, based on the legendary cavaleur {%Giacomo Casanova}. This film finds {$Allen} journeying throughout regions including Northern Bohemia, Vienna and Prague to uncover the historical truth about the real {%Casanova} and his influence on {$Mozart}'s work, during his off time from performing the lead in a Czechoslovakian production of {+Don Giovanni}. The film covers {$Allen}'s search and also his stage work, and thus utilizes a combination of documentary footage, performance and dramatization. ~ Nathan Southern, Rovi
