Mozart's opera Don Giovanni is based on the timeless story of the unrepentant serial womanizer who comes to a bad end. Hell-Bent provides a short introduction to the opera and tells its entire story in lively and entertaining verse form,with a series of powerful illustrations which set the action firmly in the twenty-first century. Hell-Bent is an ideal introduction for those approaching the opera for the first time as well as a delightful refreshment for regular opera-goers. Hell-Bent is the fourth publication in the acclaimed Operarhymes collection (www.operarhymes.com), following on from The Nibelung Ballad (Wagner's Ring), One Crazy Day (Mozart's Marriage of Figaro) and Sextet (Mozart's Cosi fan tutte). "I really enjoyed reading Hell-Bent. It made me laugh out several times, and is created with such an obvious care to detail and love for Mozart's wonderful opera. It immediately made me want to listen to Mozart again soon." Kasper Holten, Director of Opera, Royal Opera House, Covent Garden
