Mozart - Cosi fan tutte (All Women are the Same)
'A Farewell to Innocence'
A wager puts the constancy of two young women to the test. Their young men are shocked when their sweethearts seem willing to swap partners! In spite of the seemingly 'happy' ending, nothing will ever be the same.
"Opera for the People" is a lecture series run by Larry Oppenheim. Larry is currently President of the Kensington Symphony Orchestra in the East Bay, where he is co-principal oboe and solo English horn. He also writes the program notes. Larry's goal is to make classical music more enjoyable and accessible to "all the people".
Each opera in this lecture series is being performed by local companies (Pocket Opera or San Francisco Opera), close to the times of the lectures. Check out the opera with your newfound knowledge!
