4. Don Giovanni meets an old flame
Unperturbed by the events of the previous day, the next morning Don Giovanni and Leporello are hanging around in the town square outside his castle. As they loiter, they hear a woman singing about getting revenge on a lover who abandoned her. Intrigued, Giovanni approaches her and starts flirting with her, only to realise that she is one of his previous conquest, Donna Elvira – and he is the rogue she was singing about.
