6. A wedding party
Later the same day, Don Giovanni comes across a wedding party celebrating the marriage of a peasant couple, Zerlina and Masetto. Don Giovanni immediately takes a shine to the bride Zerlina and tries to persuade her new husband to let him throw the happy couple a wedding party at his castle. Masetto isn’t fooled, and guessing Giovanni’s alternative motives, turns his offer down. Pictured: Richard Anderson as Masetto and Amy Wilkinson as Zerlina, Sydney Opera Australia, 2008.
