    I'm leaning towards Don Giovanni in that case (Perhaps Elvira wants to 'kill Don').

    Another thoughtful guess, but nope...

    Mozart wrote a lot of opera's.
    It's not from one of the usual suspects though.

    Instead of making you guess 20 more times => I present to you "La Finta Semplice"

    It's part of DG's 2006 M22-series. (all 22Mozart opera's on dvd for Mozart's 250th birthday)

    This production omits all recitatives. These are replaced by spoken narration (by an actress dressed as Uma Thurman in "Kill Bill part 1.) Also featured is a "Reservoir Dogs" stand-off scene and the radiant briefcase from "Pulp Fiction" makes a short appearance.

    It was a Ballo that didn't really know when it took place. Some characters were in suits and wool coats, some in proper Rococo stuff, and the ruffs were Gustavo's idea of "sailor disguise". Also, Amelia was goth but had a hideous iridescent raincoat.

    Quite a decent performance otherwise.

    Here's something traditional:
