Mozart's COSI FAN TUTTE Comes to Middlebury's Town Hall Theater, 8/8-9

Mozart spoke German, but he wrote the popular comic opera Così fan tutte in the fashionable Italian language. The opera comes full circle at Middlebury's Town Hall Theater when the Middlebury College German for Singers and Vocal Coaches present the classic comedy in German. The adapted version will be presented Friday, August 8th, and Saturday, August 9th at 8:30 p.m.

Young singers from all over the country come to Middlebury every summer to study voice while simultaneously studying the German language. This year's production -- So machen alle in German -- is a satirical look at notions of love, faithfulness and loyalty. It features two young couples whose devotion to each other will be tried by the jaded Don Alfonso's conviction that love really is just a matter of opportunity and circumstance. With the help of the witty Despina he sets up a masquerade that provides ample opportunity for laughter but also a critique of traditional concepts of love and marriage.

Director Bettina Mathias will present a brief pre-performance lecture in English before each performance at 7:45 p.m.

Both performances are open to the general public. Tickets are $15 and may be purchased at www.townhalltheater.org, 802 382-9222, at the THT Box Office (Mon-Sat, noon-5 pm) and at the door, if available.
