Mozart's Così fan tutte

Thursday, May 23, 2024 at 7:30pm

Cahn Auditorium

Joachim Schamberger, director; Benjamin Manis, conductor; Northwestern University Chamber Orchestra 

With Mozart’s memorable melodies and Lorenzo Da Ponte’s comedic libretto, Così fan tutte has become an enduring audience favorite. In this present-day setting of the classic tale, Ferrando and Guglielmo agree to a wager with reality show producer Don Alfonso, who is confident he can prove that their fiancées, Dorabella and Fiordiligi, are fickle. The two young men pretend to have been called off to war, then visit their betrotheds in disguise—and thus begins the test of the women’s fidelity. 

Performed in Italian with English supertitles. 
Run time: Approximately 2.5 hours

Tickets are $18 for the general public and $8 for students with valid ID.
