    Summary

    This was mostly inspired by the McVicar staging of Il trovatore at the Met (I have seen both the 2011 and 2015 Live in HD broadcasts). I only changed the "staging" of the ending because onstage murder > offstage execution and most productions do it onstage nowadays. Ferrando is the POV because there's more to him than just some guy who provides exposition. Di Luna would be better off with a loyal, nice bass than a foolish soprano who wants the tenor, but alas, it is not to be. If only everyone in this opera chilled out for like five seconds…

    Ferrando looks like Štefan Kocán (he's amazing in this role) and Conte di Luna is, obviously, the late and wonderful Dmitri Hvorostovsky. I still miss him.

    Also, I'm very biased when it comes to di Luna. He's the one who made me fall in love with opera in the first place.

    Summary

    Leporello keeps two lists.

    For the prompt: something exploring the bromance I perceive between Don Giovanni and Leporello (or the straight-up romance, if you're up for it), but any sort of Leporello character study would be awesome. [I might have taken the straight-up romance route without blinking twice.]
