Depending on the interpretation, this bit can be either the dramatic climax of the opera or a shamefully awkward moment in an otherwise great performance. So we're going to throw seven great Don Giovannis, new and old, into the pit for the ultimate Don Giovanni death cry CAGE MATCH! And the Leporellos can duke it out as a sideshow!
1: Rod Gilfry (Don Giovanni) and Ildebrando D'arcangelo (Leporello)
2: Cesare Siepi (Don Giovanni) and Otto Edelmann (Leporello)
3: Dietrich Fischer-Dieskau (Don Giovanni) and Karl Christian Kohn (Leporello)
4: Tito Gobbi (Don Giovanni) and Erich Kunz (Leporello)
5: Ruggero Raimondi (Don Giovanni) and Jose Van Dam (Leporello)
6: Eberhard Waechter (Don Giovanni) and Giuseppe Taddei (Leporello)
7: Peter Mattei (Don Giovanni) and Gilles Cachemaille (Leporello)
Who's gonna win??
