      Capitol City Opera Company, co-sponsored by Arts & Ideas at Oglethorpe University, presents W.A. Mozart’s comic favorite Così fan tutte, loosely translated to mean “all women are like that.” A bet between friends wagered on fidelity has outrageous consequences in this classic Mozart opera, with libretto by Lorenzo Da Ponte. Two young men test their fiancées’ devotion by disguising themselves to seduce the other’s lover.  The girls fail the test and the now swapped couples elope.  In a cunning denouement, the trickery is revealed. Don’t miss this tale of fiancé swapping, mustachioed foreign lovers, and misguided intentions.

      Featuring the talents of Perri Montané as Fiordiligi, Katie Oates as Dorabella, Wade Thomas as Guglielmo, Cory Colton as Ferrando, Elexa Bancroft as Despina, and Ivan Segovia as Don Alfonso. Accompanied by piano/harpsichord and string quartet.
