Cosi fan tutte
Saturday August 10th & Sunday August 11th

 

Cosi fan tutte or the School for Lovers - Without question Cosi is one of Mozart’s greatest comic operas. Premiering in 1790, its subject and libretto was considered risqué and ribald for most of the 19th century. Set in Naples, the story features the love exploits of sisters Fiordiligi and Dorabella, their two soldier suitors Guglielmo and Ferrando, the plotting philosopher Don Alfonso and the worldly maid Despina in a frolicking tale of seduction, deception and forgiveness. In short, it is loads of fun! This is Mozart at his creative peak with music and drama nothing short of completely divine.
