Release of new ebook plot summary of Mozart’s Don Giovanni

A new ebook contains a brief plot summary of Mozart’s Don Giovanni, as well as the English and Italian text of three of the highlight moments of the opera.

PRLogMarch 16, 2015 — BOSTON — 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,

Thank You, Jeeves: (Jeeves & Wooster), paperback,

This is a very pleasant P. G. Wodehouse novel about Bertie Wooster and his manservant Jeeves. The story is of the “Boy meets girl, boy loses girl, boy gets girl” variety, the boy being Bertie’s friend Lord Chuffnell (known as Chuffy) and the girl being the American Pauline Stoker who was briefly in the past the fiancee of Bertie. Most of the action takes place in and around the country seat of Lord Chuffnell. Because of objection to Bertie’s playing of the banjolele, Jeeves has left Bertie’s employment and is working at times for Lord Chuffnell and at another time for Pauline’s father. Bertie is renting a cottage from Lord Chuffnell because neighbors of Bertie’s flat in London had objected to the sound of his banjolele. The book has Wodehouse’s usual delightful prose style and humor, and there are enough interesting plot twists to make the book a page-turner.

The book was first published in 1934. A caveat is that the vocabulary and some of the story reflect English thinking on African Americans in 1934 in a way that is not consistent with the political correctness of the twenty-first century. If you judge works of the past by the standards of the present, this book would not be for you.
