    About Così fan tutte

    Is it really true that all women are fickle? A confirmed bachelor believes all women have wandering eyes and bets two young soldiers that their fiancées can’t remain faithful for 24 hours. To prove their friends wrong, the soldiers disguise their identities to test their lovers’ fidelity. Will the women fall for their “new” suitors as the opera’s title (“All women do it”) suggests? Or is there more to Così fan tutte; a story of growing-up, of transformation and the discovery of love, loss, and renewal? Filled with humor and keen insight into capricious human nature, this wacky farce is full of mischief, mistaken identities, love, and some of Mozart’s most playful music.

    An international cast of young stars makes their Company debuts in this new production including 2021 Cardiff Singer of the World contestant baritone Reginald Smith Jr. in the role of Don Alfonso, mezzo-soprano Samantha Hankey as Dorabella, and tenor Konu Kim as Ferrando. Returning singers include sopranos Alisa Jordheim, who dazzled audiences as Gilda in 2019’s production of Rigoletto, as Despina and Sarah Tucker, who made her Company debut to critical and popular acclaim as Micaëla in 2019’s Carmen, as Fiordiligi. “Opera provocateur” Timothy Nelson stages this new production for his Company debut. Bruce Stasyna conducts.

    Sung in Italian with English translations above the stage
