"Don Juan." ETA Hoffmann.

Strange story. Impressions of the opera Don Juan as rendered by the music of Mozart. The sub–heading is “A fabulous Incident that Happened to a Travelling Enthusiast.” Life and theater intermix. Theater becomes life for the actors. Donna Anna is really consumed by the character who plays Don Juan. Impressions of the opera and the music. Strange.

  1. It's not strange. It's complex and beautiful. You have to have at least an intellectual appreciation for divine love.
