YOUNG ARTISTS ON TOUR - Così-Lite
LA Opera is delighted to continue its "Domingo-Thornton Young Artists On Tour" tradition this season, with a semi-staged abridged version of one of Mozart's most popular comedies, Così fan tutte.
In this opera, two young men go undercover to test the fidelity of their ladies. What could possibly go wrong? Filled with ravishingly beautiful music and sparkling wit, Così fan tutte features a funny, clever plot that was bracingly politically incorrect, even in Mozart's day. The music is performed in Italian with English narration, and running time is approximately 50 minutes.
Featuring: Fiordiligi - Tracy Cox Dorabella - Renée Rapier Ferrando - Ben Bliss Guglielmo - Museop Kim Don Alfonso - Erik Anstine Despina - Valentina Fleer Piano - Douglas Sumi
Saturday, December 3 at 2:00pm Brand Library & Art Center, Recital Hall 1601 West Mountain Street, Glendale
