Mozart’s COSI FAN TUTTI – Pop-up Opera Company
If you’ve never enjoyed opera before, Pop-Up Opera will convert you with their refreshing production of beautiful music, top-class singing and exceptional acting. Dedicated opera lovers will also be delighted by this excitingly different and imaginative performance. Cosi Fan Tutti is Mozart’s famous and much loved comedy about two sisters, Fiordiligi and Dorabella and their fiancés Ferrando and Guglielmo, who after a wager with the naughty Don Alfonso, try to test the girls’ fidelity by posing as strangers and trying to seduce them. Aided by the maid Despina, Don Alfonso’s plot has the girls hoodwinked and much hilarity ensues.
Pop-Up Opera is an innovative touring opera company showcasing exciting new operatic talent (professional opera singers in the first stage of promising careers). Their aim is to make opera enjoyable, without losing the quality of musical performance, and broadening its appeal bymaking it fun, fresh and intimate.
The performance will be sung in Italian with English translation captions projected above the stage.
