Così fan tutte
Così fan tutte, returns to the San Diego Opera stage after a 17 year absence!
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 fiancés can’t remain faithful for 24 hours. To prove their friend 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? 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 production including mezzo soprano Samantha Hankey as Dorabella, baritones Reginald Smith, Jr. as Don Alfonso and Gihoon Kim as Guglielmo, and tenor Konu Kim as Ferrando. Soprano Alisa Jordheim, who dazzled audiences as Gilda in 2019’s production of Rigoletto, rounds out the cast as Despina in a production staged by “opera provocateur” Timothy Nelson in his Company debut. Bruce Stasyna conducts.Sung in Italian with English translations above the stage
