About the event
Love makes fools of us all. Guglielmo and Ferrando naively insist that their girlfriends Fiordiligi and Dorabella could never fall for other men, and the two sisters believe that their suitors are the hottest catches in town. But when the jaded Don Alfonso and housemaid Despina team up to prove the young couples wrong, things are primed for an epic battle of the sexes. Set to some of Mozart’s most beautiful music, Così fan tutte embraces the line between romantic comedy and social satire.
In a decision that is unsurprising for a company known for its adventurous programming, Opera Theatre will refresh this classic to thoughtfully approach and address the sexual and gender dynamics of da Ponte’s original libretto for a 21st century audience.
