Loren and Sylvia do Don Giovanni
Still, this title isn't quite accurate because I've never done a sketch of Sylvia dressed as Don Giovanni and I'm not sure I'd cast her in the role because it would be odd to have Loren as Dona Elvira. These sketches happened because I was watching a production of Don Giovanni on television (I think it was the Metropolitan Opera in New York) and really liked the detail of the women's costumes. If you are unfamiliar with the storyline, Don Giovanni is quite the ladies man, but has been around the block a few too many times. Eventually he encounters a ghost which calls on him to repent or face the fires of Hell.
This other sketch of Dona Anna features Jared from Loren and Sylvia. After doing these I realized it could be a sequence for the comicbook, perhaps as a dream. I so love the drama of opera.
