According to Lew Prince of the Riverfront Times, "If for some reason you're tempted to tote your grade schooler to see Don Giovanni, you might want to rethink that. The production features significant nudity (male) and beaucoup rolling around. Giovanni's final debauch, in particular, looks like "The Rocky Horror Picture Show" as depicted by Hieronymous Bosch."
A reader who was attending the St. Louis production sent us an email pointing out that we've never covered what he believed to be the sexiest performance of "Don Giovanni" ever, Peter Sellar's updated production with Eugene and Herbert Perry, who are actual twin brothers. This production was part of Sellar's critically-acclaimed updating of Cosi fan tutte, Marriage of Figaro and Don Giovanni, all of which were once available on DVD.
Here are some pictures and a snippet of one of the sexier scenes:
