See more information »

This playbill, one of only seven to have survived that advertised performances of Mozart's operas during his lifetime, documents the Leipzig premiere of Don Giovanni on 15 June 1788, only seven and a half months after the work's world premiere in Prague. The impresario Domenico Guardasoni, who presented Don Giovanni in Prague, brought his company to perform the work in Leipzig, using many of the same performers from the first production: Donna Elvira (Micelli), Zerlina (Micelli sen.), Commendatore (Lolli), Leporello (Ponziani), Don Ottavio (Baglioni), and Masetto (Lolli). The other two roles were recast: Don Giovanni (Costa for Luigi Bassi), and Donna Anna (Crespi for Saporiti).
