Opera Night- Cosi Fan Tutte

Tuesday April 25, 8pm-11pm

Theatre at St. Jean Baptiste

184 East 76th Street- Basement

New York, New York 10012


In this live presentation, the talented performers of Divaria Produtions and Rioja Lirica present a comedy about an exchange of couples in which a philosopher bets with two young friends that women are fickle. Offended by the injury, the two men agree to the bet, and attempt to make their respective lovers believe that they have been called to war. In fact, they have not left at all and return disguised as Turks to put the girls’ fidelity to the test.Set in 1790 Naples, this production begins with a classical atmosphere but changes as the reality of the sisters does. In the style of Commedia dell’ Arte, the characters create hilarious moments as if in a silent film but exhibit more natural acting in the serious parts of the work.
Cosi fan tutte is not only an exchange of couples. It´s about society, our society, how we live, and how we change depending on the benefits we can get from that change. The first exchange is only the path to show how we can decide to even do something we don´t agree with if it means that we can obtain some benefit from it. Money, pleasure, power…In one word, corruption. And this corruption is in all levels of society; it was there in 1790, and it still exists now.
