I happen to disagree with the reviewer below. I think that this Don Giovanni is absolutely miraculous. Considering that it was studio made, it's miraculous that there is so much sense of theatre going on, as if it were a 'live' performance. This is one of those opera sets you have to have together with Klemperer's Fidelio.

It is a lot of fun to hear different performances of DON GIOVANNI, as it is an opera that is open to an infinite number of different interpretations. Each time one hears a different maestro conduct the opera, or a different perfomer in one of the main roles, one hears something new in DON GIOVANNI. Some questions we might ask ourselves as we listen to the opera are,
Is Leporello proud of his master or ashamed of him? Should Donna Anna be portrayed as angry or as pathetic, and was she actually raped by the Don or just sexually "awakened"? And who IS Don Giovanni? A lover? An egoist? The devil in disguise?
In this recording Don Giovanni, sung by Eberhard Waechter, is clearly a demon in aristocrat's clothing -- yet he can also sound loving and sincere when wooing Zerlina ("La ci darem la mano") or Donna Elvira's maid ("Deh, vieni alla finestra"). This Don knows that time is running out on him: in the banquet scene, one senses that he is trying to fit a whole lifetime's worth of pleasure into a few minutes (and Giulini's fast tempo contributes to this feeling). Giuseppe Taddei plays Leporello as though he is Don Giovanni's court jester: he speaks the truth about his master's bad behavior, but in such a humorous way that the Don can't really punish him. Taddei's frustration during the "disguises" scene with Elvira is very funny ("Che imbroglio!"), and his pleading in "Ah, pieta signori miei" is actually touching. At times, Taddei does get a bit too "hammy" for my taste, but he is always lively; he also has a wonderfully rich bass-baritone voice.
Elisabeth Schwarzkopf's Donna Elvira is a classic portrayal: larger than life and very funny. Joan Sutherland is in her most youthful voice as Donna Anna.

Giulini's sparkling conducting is only the first pleasure in this wonderful recording that appears on most critics Top-Ten list of recorded opera. The ease with which Joan Sutherland floats throught the demands of Donna Anna shows the reason for her nickname "La Stupenda". Graziella Sciutti is a perfect Zerlina. Eberhard Waechter is an attractive, noble Don -- perhaps not quite as involved in the characterisation as the great Cesare Siepi, but enjoyable nevertheless. Alva, Frick, Schwartzkopf, Taddei (wonderful) are all fine in their roles. It's an indication of the depth of quality of this recording that the world-class bass Gottlob Frick takes the comprimario role of the Commendatore, and Piero Cappuccilli is Masetto.
If you have any interest whatsoever in fine singing, or the masterpieces of Mozart, you must have this recording.

It puzzled me for a long time how the old version could co-exist alongside this latest remastering. Fact is that the older 1997 remastering is actually better. This one is more muffled - that one is brighter and clearer. I think there must have been some degradation in the original tape quality in the intervening 5 years.

This is the Don Giovanni that almost all critics in the world to be one of the greatest recordings of all time.
It is also available in an another pressing(no better) for a lot of money.
Do yourself a favor, go to that other famous company's same Don Giovanni, read the reviews, and buy this super bargain.
