Presentation

Crudele… Non mi dir, a setting by Lorenzo Da Ponte, was composed by Wolfgang Amadeus Mozart in 1788 (F Major) and premiered the same year. This aria is part of Act II of the opera, Don Giovanni.

After the huge success Le Noze di Figaro met in Prague in 1786, Mozart was commissioned by an impresario in Prague to write another opera the next year. He asked Da Ponte to write him a new libretto and their second collaboration gave birth to Don Giovanni (complete title: Il dissoluto punito, ossia il Don Giovanni), an opera buffa based on the legends of Don Juan, a fictional libertine.
Act I opens on Leporello guarding the house of Donna Anna at nighttime. Don Giovanni, his master has introduced himself in her house to seduce Donna Anna, daughter of il Commendatore (Don Pedro), engaged to Don Octavio. Suddenly Donna Anna appears with Don Giovanni and shouts for help. Her father answers her cries and forces Don Giovanni to fight him in duel. He is mortally hurt and Don Giovanni runs away without revealing his identity. Donna Anna is left in a state of desperation and Ottavio promises to take revenge.
In the next scene, Don Giovanni and Leporello meet Elvira, a woman Don Giovanni has already seduced and abandoned. Once he recognizes her, he leaves, asking Leporello to console her. Leoporello tells Elvira she is one of thousands, and Elvira promises she will get revenge.
The next scene opens on Masetto and Zerlina preparing for their wedding. Don Giovanni decides to seduce the pretty Zerlina but Elvira saves her. She meets Donna Anna and Ottavio and warns them against him. Dona Anna believes she has recognized him as the murderer of her father and Ottavio swears he will take revenge. Don Giovanni goes home joyfully unaware and asks Leporello to organize a party at his house and invite every girl he can find.
Don Giovanni invites Zerlina and Masetto to the ball while Leporello offers to Elvira, Ottavio and Anna he has not recognized to come also (they are wearing masks). Don Giovanni tries, once more to seduce Zerlina who cries out for help. As a crowd appears, Don Giovanni pretends it was Leporello that was seducing Zerlina. No one believes him but he managed to run away.
Act II opens on Leporello wanting to leave his master. Don Giovanni convinces him instead to exchange clothes with him thinking Leporello’s clothes would help him seduce Donna Anna’s maid. Donna Elvira appears at her window and Don Giovanni decides to try and seduce her again. He sends Leporello out in the open (in his clothes) while he sings to her, his aria full of “repentance and love”. Before he finishes Masetto and friends arrive looking to beat up Don Giovanni. He pretends to be Leporello and joins in, pretending he also hates him. He manages to disperse Masetto’s friends and then beat Masetto up with his own weapons before running off. Zerlina arrives and consoles Masetto.
As Elvira and Leporello are joined by Ottavio, Anna, Masetto and Zerlina, they all want to kill him except Elvira. Leporello reveals his real identity and implores forgiveness. He manages to escape. Ottavio seeing in this disguise the proof of Don Giovanni being the murderer of Donna Anna’s father, swears to take revenge.
Scene 3 opens on Don Giovanni wandering into a graveyard where he reunites with Leporello. Leporello is telling him about his latest adventures when a voice interrupts them warning Don Giovanni his laugher will not last for long. Under the statue in front of which they stand, the inscription says: I am awaiting for revenge. Don Giovanni lightly invites the statue to have dinner at his house and it accepts!
Scene 4 opens on Don Octavio trying to convince Donna Anna to marry him now. She refuses as she is still grieving her father but reassures him of her fidelity and love in her aria: Non mi dir.
