When George London stepped on stage as the legendary lover Don Giovanni, audiences gasped. Handsome and effortlessly charismatic, he promised to fulfill every woman's desire. No wonder the beautiful Lisa Della Casa (Elvira) didn't want to let him go, and Eleanor Steber (Anna) wants to put off her wedding for another year. Ezio Flagello is the servant Leporello and Cesare Valletti is a very aristocratic Don Ottavio. The great conductor Karl Böhm revisits the opera of his Met debut

Hans-Joachim Ketelsen is Mandryka, the wealthy landowner and unlikely suitor who wins Arabella's heart. Barbara Bonney sings Zdenka, Arabella's younger sister, and Raymond Very is Matteo, the officer who thinks he is in love with Arabella but unexpectedly finds his happiness elsewhere. Judith Forst and Eric Halfvarson round out the cast as Count and Countess Waldner, Arabella and Zdenka's parents. Christoph Eschenbach conducts
