Don Juan Tenorio, accompanied by his servant, Leporello, has been sentenced to roam around the world. He refuses to accept the destiny that has been marked by God, which goes from regret to get forgiveness, and he also refuses to accept his ancestors’ rules to live in his particular hell. His adventures take place in Paris in the 60’s, where Leporello will be the confidant-narrator of Don Juan’s past and secrets. In this incredible recreation of the myth, GTB mixes deliberately reality and fantasy.
