Scene from Don Juan, ou le Festin de Pierre, 1665, (18th century). Don Juan is speaking to the stone statue of the Commander whom he killed when the old man challenged the Don who had seduced his daughter. He is asking the statue to a banquet. His manservant cringes in terror. This play was given 15 performances in 1665 and was then proscribed. The libretto of Mozart's opera Don Giovanni (1787) was based on Moliere's text. From Don Juan, ou le Festin de Pierre (Don Juan, or the Stone Banquet) by Moliere. (Paris, 1665)

Fire and Water, The Magic Flute, 1816. Artist: Karl Friedrich Schinkel

Fire and Water, The Magic Flute, 1816. Stage design by Karl Freidrich Schinkel for The Magic Flute (Die Zauberflote), showing fire and water, two of the ordeals that Tamino, the hero, had to undergo before being received by Sarastro the High Priest in the temple of Isis and Osiris. The opera by Wolfgang Amadeus Mozart (1756-1791) with libretto by Emanuel Schikaneder (1751-1812) was first produced in Vienna in 1791. The plot has overtones of Freemasonry. Some say Queen of the Night is based on the Empress Maria Theresa (1717-1780)
