Don Juan became famous for such numerous amorous adventures that his name became a household one and now is used in the meaning of "great seducer". Don Juan is impudent and gentle, skillful and gallant, crafty and cold-blooded. History knows other great "ladies tempters", but can not explain the mystery of their numerous love victories.

 

These bright personalities for several centuries excited the minds and feelings of millions people, and their characters were so attractive that representatives of different arts devote their works to them. For the first time an irresistibly charming hero appeared in the play of the Spanish dramatist of the first half of the 17th century, Tirso de Molina. Since then, Don Juan went around the world: in Italy he became the hero of Goldoni, in France – of Moliere, Corneille, Merimee and Duma, in England – of Bairon, in Russia - of Pushkin and A. Tolstoy. In 1713 in Paris put up the first opera about Don Juan, in 1761 in Vienna - the ballet of Gluck, in 1787 in Prague - Mozart's opera, and almost a hundred years later in St. Petersburg - the opera of Dargomyzhsky. At the end of the 19th century the musical poem "Don Juan" became the first composition by which 25-year-old Richard Strauss conquered the musical world.

 

The magic of love, the mystery of the birth of this stunning feeling is still not solved. This fact makes more attractive everything that is associated with it, and you can enjoy that sweet energy of love, which is filled with world masterpieces.
