    there's a film version of don giovanni?!
    A violist is sitting in the front row, crying hysterically. The conductor askes the violist, "What's wrong?" The violist answers, "The second oboe loosened one of my tuning pegs." The conductor replied, "I admit, that seems a little childish, but nothing to get so upset about. Why are you crying?" To which the violist replied, "He won't tell me which one!!"

    Don Giovanni by Joseph Losey, made in 1979, with Raimondi and Te Kanawa. Beautiful movie-like production (not on stage, but in natural settings), poor sound if you play it through your state-of-the-art home theater.

    Unlike some, I like the Joseph Losey version of Don Giovanni-- the recording is one of my favorites too. Great singers!!! The
    statue coming to life sequence IS pretty lame (it ain't very scary!!), but I think it's
    good! I'm sure there're DVDs of staged versons, but I haven't seen any.
