Summer operat in Vancouver

Summer Opera: Mozart's Cosi Fan Tutte, sung in Italian with English subtitles

Dates: August 4, 5 @ 7:00 pm | August 6 @ 2:30 pm

ViVace Summer Opera presents Mozart's Cosi Fan Tutte opera in concert. The English translation is Thus Do They All or The School for Lovers. The opera uses the theme of fiancée swapping, a concept which dates back to the 13th century. The story also incorporates elements of the myth of Procris as found in Ovid's Meamorphoses. The opera's first performance took place at the Burgtheatre in Vienna on January 26, 1790. The border of our artwork uses the playbill from the first performance. After World Word II, this opera was frequently performed and appears 14th on the Operabase list of the most-performed operas world wide. Luke Housner, Music Director and Pianist. Tickets: free will donation.
