Mozart’s delightful and elegant opera buffa, Cosi fan tutte, unfolds a tale of mistaken identities, love, trust, deceit and final reconciliation. When two soldiers decide to test the love and faithfulness of their beloveds by pretending to go away but then appearing in disguise to observe their reactions, events unfold in ways unforeseen by the young lovers. This opera contains some of the Mozart’s most beautiful music.

“It’s not often that a fortunate opera-goer witnesses the birth of a star!” — San Francisco review of Danielle Talamantes, a rising star of the Metropolitan Opera

Praised by The Washington Post for her “consistently beautiful sound,” American mezzo-soprano Sarah Mesko, who is 2016-17 made her Metropolitan Opera debut in Mozart’s Magic Flute, is rapidly gaining attention for her “rich mezzo soprano” voice and musicality.
