Opera fans will delight at presentation by UWOpera students

feb-12-cosiOpera fans (and those who might become fans) can celebrate next Tuesday, Feb. 12 (8 p.m.) with a presentation of Cosi fan tutte, a story about constancy in love.

And in particular the constancy of women. This is something Mozart would fret about in his own married life. He thought his wife was a flirt. His librettist, the man-about-town Lorenzo da Ponte, shared this general view about women’s constancy, rather ironically.

The opera relates the story of what happens when the worldly wise Don Alfonso makes a wager with the two young soldiers, Guglielmo and Ferrando, that their intendeds will not remain faithful.

This concert performance by UWOpera students of Western University is produced with minimal costumes and set. Tickets are $25.
