Saturday, August 10

Cosi fan tutte

Whitefish Performing Arts Center

Opera

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, this opera is loads of fun! This is Mozart at his creative peak with music and drama… it’s nothing short of completely divine.

Featuring Hanna Brammer as Fiordiligi, Alexander Boyd as Guglielmo, Anna Laurenzo as Dorabella, Andrew Surrena as Ferrando, Amy Logan as Despina, and Benjamin Sieverding as Don Alfonso.
