Due to most opera advertisement posters I found not having text besides the title, I decided to eliminate the text. I particularly liked the images of women with obscured faces and wanted to flip that on its head. In the poster below, the women are on the left. Don Giovanni is on the right, and he is the one who is fading or having his identity being shaded out.
