Event Details

Così fan tutte is Mozart’s most polarizing opera. Often considered the perfect ensemble opera, Così features ravishing melodies and glorious arias, duets, and sextets. The emotionally complex and quick-fire comedy offers an examination of sexual attitudes and the battle between love, reason, and human fallibility. Enjoy a special pre-show Q&A with Delores Ziegler, one of the most celebrated mezzo-sopranos and Dorabellas of her time. Ziegler will speak at all four productions, one hour before the performance starts.

Sung in Italian with English captions.
