Wolfgang Amadeus Mozart's

Cosí fan tutte

Quiet on the set! Così fan tutte... take 2! Set in front of (and behind!) the cameras of a 1980s soap opera, this star-studded and shoulder-padded production empowers Mozart’s female  characters like never before. With stage direction by Benjamin Robinson, this show delivers an  unforgettable evening of drama, laughter and Mozart’s most magical melodies. Daniel Kleinknecht  conducts the illustrious musicians of Orchestra Iowa. 

Don’t miss the show before the show! 45 minutes before curtain, join University of Iowa Professor Anna  Barker for a pre-opera talk in the Encore Lounge about the history of Mozart, the opera, and its glorious  score. Allow the paparazzi to snap your photo as you walk the red carpet and rub shoulders with soap opera stars vying for fame. Drama is in full swing at the Daytime TV Awards when you arrive early to  enjoy Così fan tutte!
