Hi, I'm trying to find the opera that this quote is from,
"(I) think, mind you I say, I think."
I know that the opera its from was performed at Glimmerglass Opera, for those of you who are familiar with that. If anybody knows where this quote is from, please email me at email@example.com! Thanks!
I'm so sorry i've been neglecting this community so horribly! My plan was to straight away force all these questions on everyone as we'd get on like a house on fire. That failed miserably as i was going through my finals... and though my mind is still thirsty for other peoples opinions i come to lack the questions =/
I can express this though and have been wanting to be for quite some time... Donna Anna really pisses me off. Only on one aspect though... the fact that her father has just been slain by Don Giovanni and so the first thing she does is ask Don Ottavio to go slay Don Giovanni... which i think is very selfish and stupid if you want all the people around you who you love to be killed because you're a woman.
Good news for myself, my mother gave me an early christmas present of 2 tickets to see Don Giovanni at the Opera House in september next year XD. I've just given the second ticket to my piano teacher who i adore. Front row! Middle seats! No surtitles! lol.

Since I have never been to an opera before (as mentioned in the below topic) I have some questions : )
1) How long is the opera DG?
2) Are there intermissions between ACTS?
3) We're going at 3:00pm so what kind of attire would we where? Business casual or formal? (I don't want to come off as an a*s when I get there ;))
Thanks : )
Hello : )
I'm going to be seeing Don Giovanni for the first time and my mom is coming. I know a bit about the libretto but not enough to coherently explain to her what it's about.
Would one of you Don Giovanni fans write or give me a link to a nice explanation as to what it's about.
Thanks : )
