I am only going to say a few things about this performance. It is the best Don Giovanni that I have ever heard. Furtwängler died 3 months after conducting it. I am only letting you know that it is out there. It is a long film, but it is worth every minute. The cast is thus:

Don Giovanni – Cesare Siepi
Leporello – Otto Edelmann
Donna Anna – Elisabeth Grümmer
Don Ottavio – Anton Dermota
Donna Elvira – Lisa della Casa
Zerlina – Erna Berger
Masetto – Walter Berry
Il commendatore – Dezső Ernster

Conductor – Wilhelm Furtwängler

If you have the time to listen to it, enjoy it!
