Don Giovanni is a bad man. He's the kinda amoral, love-'em-and-leave-'em rogue that exposes those Jersey Shore dipsticks for the amateurs they are. He's just recently tried to force another man's fiancee into his bed, killed that woman's father in a duel and is now working on prising away the newlywed Zerlina from her husband of one day. Yeah, he sets the scoundrel bar pretty high -- or pretty low, actually. Mariusz Kwiecien (pictured) stars as the detestable Don in the Metropolitan Opera's acclaimed production of Mozart's Don Giovanni, which gets a nationwide encore screening tonight at 6:30 p.m. You can catch it locally at the AMC Esquire 7 (6706 Clayton Road, Richmond Heights; www.fathomevents.com). Tickets are $15 to $18.
