The libretto of Lorenzo Da Ponte was based closely on a libretto by Giovanni Bertati for the opera Don Giovanni Tenorio , first performed in Venice early in , although he was loath to admit this in memoirs written decades later. Don Giovanni was originally to have been performed on 14 October for a visit to Prague of the Archduchess Maria Theresa of Austria , niece of the Emperor Joseph II , and her new husband, Prince Anthony of Saxony ; however, the production could not be prepared in time and Le nozze di Figaro was substituted instead on the order of the emperor himself.
Reports about the last-minute completion of the overture conflict; some say it was completed the day before the premiere,  some on the very day. More likely it was completed the day before, in light of the fact that Mozart recorded the completion of the opera on 28 October.
The score calls for double woodwinds , two horns , two trumpets , three trombones alto, tenor, bass , timpani , basso continuo for the recitatives , and the usual string section. The composer also specified occasional special musical effects. In act 2, Giovanni is seen to play the mandolin , accompanied by pizzicato strings. In the same act, two of the Commendatore 's interventions " Di rider finirai pria dell'aurora " and " Ribaldo, audace, lascia a' morti la pace " are accompanied by a wind chorale of oboes, clarinets, bassoons , and trombones with cellos and basses playing from the string section.
The instrumentation and vocal writing are very reminiscent of Mozart's treatment of the voice of Neptune in Idomeneo. The opera was first performed on 29 October in Prague under its full title of Il dissoluto punito ossia il Don Giovanni — Dramma giocoso in due atti The Rake punished, or Don Giovanni , a dramma giocoso in two acts. The work was rapturously received, as was often true of Mozart's work in Prague See Mozart and Prague. The Prager Oberpostamtzeitung reported, "Connoisseurs and musicians say that Prague has never heard the like," and "the opera … is extremely difficult to perform.
Mozart also supervised the Vienna premiere of the work, which took place on 7 May For this production, he wrote two new arias with corresponding recitatives — Don Ottavio's aria " Dalla sua pace " K.
He also made some cuts in the Finale in order to make it shorter and more incisive, the most important of which is the section where Anna and Ottavio, Elvira, Zerlina and Masetto, Leporello reveal their plans for the future " Or che tutti, o mio tesoro ". These cuts are very seldom performed in theatres or recordings.
The opera's final ensemble was generally omitted until the early 20th century, a tradition that apparently began very early on. According to the 19th-century Bohemian memoirist Wilhelm Kuhe , the final ensemble was only presented at the very first performance in Prague, then never heard again during the original run. Undoubtedly, this practice was sanctioned by Mozart himself. Modern productions sometimes include both the original aria for Don Ottavio, " Il mio tesoro ", and its replacement from the first production in Vienna that was crafted to suit the capabilities of the tenor Francesco Morella, " Dalla sua pace ".
Elvira's " In quali eccessi, o Numi Mi tradi per l'alma ingrata " is usually retained as well. The duet " Per queste tue manine " and the whole accompanying scene involving Zerlina and Leporello from the Viennese version is almost never included. In modern-day productions, Masetto and the Commendatore are typically played by different singers unless limited by such things as finance or rehearsal time and space , although the same singer played both roles in both the Prague and Vienna premieres, and the final scene's chorus of demons after the Commendatore's exit gives the singer time for a costume change before entering as Masetto for the sextet.

Don Giovanni, a young,  arrogant, and sexually promiscuous nobleman, abuses and outrages everyone else in the cast until he encounters something he cannot kill, beat up, dodge, or outwit. The overture begins with a thundering D minor cadence, followed by a short misterioso sequence which leads into a light-hearted D major allegro. Leporello, Don Giovanni's servant, grumbles about his demanding master and daydreams about being free of him " Notte e giorno faticar " — "Night and day I slave away".
He is keeping watch while Don Giovanni is in the Commendatore's house attempting to seduce or rape the Commendatore's daughter, Donna Anna. Don Giovanni is masked and Donna Anna tries to hold him and to unmask him, shouting for help. He breaks free and she runs off as the Commendatore enters the garden. The Commendatore blocks Don Giovanni's path and forces him to fight a duel. Don Giovanni kills the Commendatore with his sword and escapes with Leporello. She makes Don Ottavio swear vengeance against the unknown murderer. They hear a woman Donna Elvira singing of having been abandoned by her lover, on whom she is seeking revenge " Ah, chi mi dice mai " — "Ah, who could ever tell me".
Don Giovanni starts to flirt with her, but it turns out he is the former lover she is seeking. The two recognize each other and she reproaches him bitterly. He shoves Leporello forward, ordering him to tell Donna Elvira the truth about him, and then hurries away. Leporello tells Donna Elvira that Don Giovanni is not worth her feelings for him. In a frequently cut recitative, Donna Elvira vows vengeance.
A marriage procession with Masetto and Zerlina enters. Don Giovanni and Leporello arrive soon after. Don Giovanni is immediately attracted to Zerlina, and he attempts to remove the jealous Masetto by offering to host a wedding celebration at his castle.
On realizing that Don Giovanni means to remain behind with Zerlina, Masetto becomes angry " Ho capito! Don Giovanni and Zerlina are soon alone and he immediately begins his seductive arts Duet: Donna Elvira arrives and thwarts the seduction " Ah, fuggi il traditor " — "Flee from the traitor! She leaves with Zerlina. Don Ottavio and Donna Anna enter, plotting vengeance on the still unknown murderer of Donna Anna's father.
Donna Anna, unaware that she is speaking to her attacker, pleads for Don Giovanni's help. Don Giovanni, relieved that he is unrecognised, readily promises it, and asks who has disturbed her peace. As Don Giovanni leaves, Donna Anna suddenly recognizes him as her father's murderer and tells Don Ottavio the story of his intrusion, claiming that she was deceived at first because she was expecting a night visit from Don Ottavio himself, but managed to fight Don Giovanni off after discovering the imposture long recitative exchange between Donna Anna and Don Ottavio. She repeats her demand that he avenge her and points out that he will be avenging himself as well aria: In the Vienna version, Don Ottavio, not yet convinced Donna Anna having only recognised Don Giovanni's voice, not seen his face , resolves to keep an eye on his friend " Dalla sua pace la mia dipende " — "On her peace my peace depends".
Leporello informs Don Giovanni that all the guests of the peasant wedding are in Don Giovanni's house and that he distracted Masetto from his jealousy, but that Zerlina, returning with Donna Elvira, made a scene and spoiled everything. However, Don Giovanni remains cheerful and tells Leporello to organize a party and invite every girl he can find.
Don Giovanni's "Champagne Aria": They hasten to his palace.
Zerlina follows the jealous Masetto and tries to pacify him " Batti, batti o bel Masetto " — "Beat, O beat me, handsome Masetto" , but just as she manages to persuade him of her innocence, Don Giovanni's voice from offstage startles and frightens her. Masetto hides, resolving to see for himself what Zerlina will do when Don Giovanni arrives. Zerlina tries to hide from Don Giovanni, but he finds her and attempts to continue the seduction, until he stumbles upon Masetto's hiding place.
Confused but quickly recovering, Don Giovanni reproaches Masetto for leaving Zerlina alone, and returns her temporarily to him. Don Giovanni then leads both offstage to his ballroom.
