Set in 18th Century Seville, Spain, the troublesome Don Giovanni disguises himself as Don Ottavio, to seduce his pure and beautiful fiancee Donna Anna, ahead of the pairs impending wedding vows, leading to a the murder of Donna Anna's father by Giovanni as he tries to foil the nefarious plot.

Meanwhile, Donna Elvira arrives to track down Giovanni, her errant husband. The ensuing chaos sees Giovanni try to put the moves on his own wife, whom he fails to even recognise. Once let into the secret of Giovanni's two thousand plus amours conquests, she seeks revenge on the rake and Don Giovanni's world begins to unravel as he faces his final comeuppance at the hands of jealous husbands, angry wives and an unearthly presence.
