Così fan tutte: A Preview
Exclusive 20% ticket discount is being offered to attend the Arizona Opera shows discussed in series. Participants can use promo code: JFCS20 at tickets.azopera.org.
Join Dr. Miriam Schildkret, PN1 for a three-part lecture series previewing Arizona Opera’s productions of Carmen, A Little Night Music, and Così fan tutte.
Così tells the story of two sisters who are falsely led to believe that their fiancés have been called to war. In truth, their lovers were only out to test their fidelity, so they return home—in disguise—to seek the truth. Among the delightful cast of characters in this Mozart classic are Despina, the nosy maid, and Don Alfonso, a philosopher who is actually behind the scenes pulling the strings and making it all happen.
