* GreenEyedMonster: Masetto. Though, to be fair, what man wouldn't be jealous if Don Giovanni was hitting on his wife?

* ReallyGetsAround: This is Don Giovanni's character in a nutshell - [[LampshadeHanging lampshaded]] with Leporello's recounting of his list of women. Giovanni has, in Leporello's accounting, slept with 2,065 women in total. In other words, an average of one woman ''every night'' for ''five years, eight months, and two weeks''.

* ActorAllusion: During the dinner scene, Giovanni's musicians play the melody of ''Non piu andrai'', [[Theatre/TheMarriageOfFigaro Figaro's]] most enduring tune. Leporello remarks "I know this one all too well". The actor playing Leporello when the opera debuted in Prague had also played Figaro in ''Theatre/TheMarriageOfFigaro'' (which had been well-received in Prague).

(The parts have a similar vocal range, and so many singers have played both Leporello and Figaro.)

''Don Giovanni, or the Rake Punish'd'' is one of the most famous versions of the Don Juan legend and the second joint venture of the composer-librettist team of WolfgangAmadeusMozart and Lorenzo Da Ponte. As a ''dramma giocoso'' (a genre-busting mix of comedy and drama), the {{opera}} tells the story everyone has heard of and no one actually can narrate beyond saying that the protagonist is TheCasanova, while the Don Juan legend is in fact much older.

How is this supposed to be a joke?
* BrickJoke: The music that the Commendatore sings as he drags Giovanni to hell is a reprise of the overture which began the opera. These days, overtures usually contain the "highlights" of the rest of the show (''every'' [[TheMusical musical]] does it), but in Mozart's time, it was practically unheard of to repeat material from the overture in the actual opera.
