"This inspired adaptation of Don Giovanni is a reworking of the Mozart opera from the point of view of Don Giovannis servant, Leporello. Taking the form of a film within a film, it is simultaneously set in two separate eras 1920s Hollywood and 17th-century Spain. When it opens in 1930, Leporello is presented as the host of a movie that reveals the longstanding secret of his masters identity in 1620 Seville. Through the clever implementation of visual effects, Hvorostovsky performs the two lead roles of the Opera Don Giovanni and Leporello."

The woman is no one else but Mrs. Hvorostovsky, though I'm not sure if they were married at the time of filming. She doesn't sing in the movie.

The film is magnificent. If you're interested, they might still have it here: http://www.cbcshop.ca/CBC/shopping/pr...
But I don't know whether they ship outside the US.

Deh, vieni alla finestra, o mio tesoro,
Deh, vieni a consolar il pianto mio.
Se neghi a me di dar qualche ristoro,
Davanti agli occhi tuoi morir vogl'io!
Tu ch'hai la bocca dolce piů del miele,
Tu che il zucchero porti in mezzo al core!
Non esser, gioia mia, con me crudele!
Lasciati almen veder, mio bell'amore!

O come to the window, beloved;
O come and dispel all my sorrow!
If you refuse me some solace,
before you dear eyes I will die.
Your lips are sweeter than honey,
your heart is sweetness itself:
then be not cruel, my angel,
I beg for one glance, my beloved!
