* ValuesDissonance: A strange incidence, not between Mozart and the 21st century viewer, but with viewers only 20 or 30 years younger than himself (if that): while Don Giavanni's plot deals with violence, rape and sex under coercion, this generation found its AllMenArePerverts premise ''far'' less shocking than the AllWomenAreLustful premise of CosiFanTutte (where the girls only get engaged and may not even kiss their boyfriends from whirlwind romances while already on a promise with other men.) According to Beethovan this was 'an insult to all women'- it was so shocking that it disappeared from the repatoire for over a century.

* OvershadowedByAwesome: May have happened to Nannaerl, but it may have just been because she was a girl.
