COSI FAN TUTTE
by W.A. Mozart SUMMER 2018
sung in Italian with English Dialogues
Subtitled “The School for Lovers,” this beloved Mozart comedy is a probing look into romantic relationships and their endurance with temptation. It starts out with a cynical older gentleman's bet to Ferrando and Gulgielmo (two officers) that their two beautiful young fiance's can’t remain faithful to their fiancés when they are deployed for war.
As the intrigue deepens, Ferrando and Guglielmo disguise themselves as handsome Albanian tourists and attempt to court the young women’s affections. The couples’ feelings reveal themselves through this Mozart masterpiece and his brilliant librettist, Da Ponte. Funny, comical scenes develop and bring about a surprising final twist.
