We are pleased to announce Dunster House Opera's 2014 production:
Cosi fan Tutte
Music by Wolfgang Amadeus Mozart
Libretto by Lorenzo Da Ponte
Ferrando and Guglielmo are engaged to Dorabella and Fiordiligi. Enlisting the help of mischievous maid Despina, Don Alfonso bets Ferrando and Guglielmo that he can prove in one day's time that their fiancees are mercurial when it comes to men. After all, Alfonso knowingly quips, cosi fan tutte-such are all women! Join the Dunster House Opera as we recast Mozart and Da Ponte's classic fiancee swap as a 1960s sex comedy.
Directed by Madeleine Bersin '14
Music Directed by Jake Wilder-Smith '16
Produced by Simon de Carvalho '14 and David Manella '14
