Maestro Stefano Montanari is back in Toronto as guest conductor for Opera Atelier’s latest production of Mozart’s sensuous, sexual rom-com Don Giovanni, and you are invited to meet him. He will be giving a talk about his career and his interpretation of the extraordinary music composed by W. A. Mozart on Monday, October 3, 2011 – 6:30 pm – 8:00 pm Istituto Italiano di Cultura – 496, Huron St., Toronto. Admission is free.

Did I mention he’s a fantastic whistler? Watch this video, someone should give him a Grammy for this.
