Ramon Vinay said something in his intermission interview that I had forgotten (if I ever really knew), that all the action takes place in a single day. Amazing. The Commendatore died in the morning, and during the day a statue was carved of him and that warning engraved on the base. Fast work. And who had that done? Anna and Ottavio spent all their time chasing Giovanni.

Kay, you couldn't have seen that drab set before. It's a new production. But I suppose all brown walls with acting cubicles look pretty much alike.
