Mozart’s comedic masterpiece, Così fan tutte, (“Thus Do All Women” or “Women Are Like that”) is set in Naples in the 18th century.
The jaded, Don Alfonso makes a wager with two young soldiers, Guglielmo and Ferrando, to prove their girlfriends’ infidelity. The insanity begins as the men accept the bet and pretend to have been called to war and leave Naples. The plot ensues as the two return disguised to woo each other’s girlfriend. Don enlists Despina, the girls’ maid, to assist with the charade. Despina attempts to convince the girls that all is fair in love and war. Will their love pass the test and who will win the wager?
This is one of Mozart’s most beloved operas, and has been since its creation in January 1790.
This event is free and open to the public.
