11. Don Giovanni attacks Zerlina
While Leporello dances with Masetto, Giovanni whisks Zerlina off to a private room against her wishes. Her screams bring the other guests running to her aid and Giovanni tries to frame Leporello for the attack. But the guests aren’t fooled, Ottavio pulls out a pistol and he, along with Elvira and Anna declare they know the truth. Giovanni flees with his servant.
