Synopsis: After Donna Anna, Don Ottavio, and Masetto and his peasants find Leporello (who is disguised as Don Giovanni), they want to bring him to justice for all his wrong-doings. Leporello then takes off the disguise and shows them that he is not, in fact, Don Giovanni. When Masetto then accuses him of beating him up, Leporello explains to him that it couldn't have been him, since he was with Donna Elvira the entire time.
