Professional self-proclaimed provocateur Peter Sellars sets his 1990 Don Giovanni film in Spanish Harlem, New York City, in a ghetto setting, which works surprisingly well with reference to the original libretto: Don Ottavio as the under-cover police officer, Donna Anna double-crossing him (as well as being a heroine addict, shooting heroine during Non mi dir). Don Giovanni and Leporello are barely distinguishable from each other (they are played by twins as well) as low-life criminals.
