Così fan tutte

Set on Shenandoah Conservatory’s main proscenium stage and directed each year by a different distinguished guest artist, Main Stage Opera provides audiences with the full opera experience! The classic romantic comedy Così fan tutte follows two sisters whose devotion to their beloved fiancés is cynically put to the test by their own lovers with help from the conniving Alfonso and mischievous Despina. Mozart’s radiant score, performed by the Shenandoah Conservatory Symphony Orchestra, is cleverly juxtaposed with one of the most bittersweet stories of deceit, fidelity and love.

Sung in Italian with English titles.

Duration: Approximately 170 minutes*
