Così fan tutte
by Wolfgang Amadeus Mozart


Mozart’s comedy about the sexes. This production is set in a carnival-esque, funhouse environment inspired by 1950s Coney Island—complete with bearded ladies, fire eaters, and a Ferris wheel. A frothy comedy of manners with an intensely dark take on human nature; an old story with a startlingly modern tone, and a beautiful score depicting questionable behavior. Every possible impression of love — from the loftiest to the basest — is explored in this extraordinary opera.

Tony Award–winner Kelli O’Hara stars as Despina and Christopher Maltman as Don Alfonso (pictured).
