Whether it was a solo singer or sung together by those in attendance, the music of the movement kept hope alive.

​Cosi fan Tutte

FRIDAY, JANUARY 22; SUNDAY, JANUARY 24; TUESDAY, JANUARY 26; SHOW TIMES VARY
LOCATION: TPAC - TENNESSEE PERFORMING ARTS CENTER $26 - $125

It all starts with a bet. Two young men enter into a wager with an older bachelor to prove the indestructible fidelity of their beautiful fiancées. Lesson No. 1: Never make bets in which the human heart is involved. This comic opera is the peak of Mozart’s brilliant exploration into the workings of love. Following closely on the heels of such masterpieces as "The Marriage of Figaro" and "Don Giovanni," "Cosi fan Tutte" is the ultimate statement on the dissimilarity between men and women when it comes to affairs of the heart.
