TOLEDO, OH – January 22, 2013 – Toledo Opera’s 2012-2013 Season continues on February 15 at 8 pm and February 17 at 2 pm, 2013 with Mozart’s Don Giovanni at the Valentine Theatre. In the opera, first performed in 1787, Mozart transforms the legendary womanizer Don Juan into a complex character of mythical status, capable of capturing the interest of audiences up to current times. Toledo Opera’s production of Don Giovanni sets the classic story in the 1950s, providing a visually compelling new look at the opera. The production will be conducted by Stefan Sanderling, returning to the podium after conducting the Opera Gala and Turandot in 2012, and will be directed by Brian Deedrick, making his Toledo Opera debut.
