Why See Portland Opera - Cosi Fan Tutte?
Mozart's racy, final opera comes to Portland
The intimate Newmark Theatre plays host to Mozart's last, celebrated comic opera, with a special production devised for the smaller venue. Flirtation and fidelity are the order of the day in Mozart's sublime Cosi Fan Tutte (translates as 'women are all, and always so'.) Two young soldiers fall afoul of a mischievous wager to prove their doting fiancees faithful. So begins a tale of devious maids, mistaken identities and seduction as desire and lust blur the lines in only the way Mozart can!
First performed in 1790, it was considered too racy throughout the 19th century, with many themes considered amoral and risque, but has since been thoroughly reappraised and gained popularity after World War I.
Opening night: 14 July 2017
