-- Anyone who is going to be attending a performance of Mozart's opera Don Giovanni will find John Pierce's new ebook plot summary useful. The summary can be easily read before the performance. Once one has downloaded the ebook on one's ebook device one will not need an internet connection in order to read it. One can read it at home or at the office, in the theatre before the performance, or on a train while en route to the opera. The summary is short and direct enough to be read relatively quickly. Without being too long it contains more information than one might find in a free program booklet.
In addition the ebook contains the English and Italian text of three excerpts from the opera to assist further in preparation for the performance. They are the catalogue aria, the duet between Zerlina and Don Giovanni, and the final moments in which the stone guest appears in response to Don Giovanni's invitation.
The ebook can be purchased as an Amazon Kindle edition, as a Nook Book from Barnes and Noble, and can also be purchased from Smashwords, Kobo Books, and iBooks.
