Summary: Leporello knows the score

Leporello sings his catalogue aria to the woman who loves his master, an unfolding list of humiliation by numbers. Loved and betrayed or raped and forgotten, it's all the same to the Don. This one's nothing special, just another item in the ledger. If she wears a skirt, you know what he does.

She vows revenge, though it'll take a dead man, a statue, to drag him to hell where he belongs. But she'll be there at the finish, Donna Elvira, rejoicing in his downfall, singing the triumph song of the righteous. She has a name. She has a voice.
