This Summer WNO takes you back to school with a brand new production of Mozart’s comic opera
This Summer Welsh National Opera takes you back to school with a brand new production of Mozart’s comic opera Così fan tutte aka School of Love. Set in the early 1970s, four sixth formers discover that falling in love can be incredible, dramatic, awkward and complicated in this coming of age tale.
The students are given a valuable lesson in love, life and liberty when their teacher involves them in a secret experiment. They are challenged to re-think their relationships with each other and indeed their whole identities as they are confronted with a series of amusing scenarios designed to deceive.
Director Max Hoehn and Conductor Frederick Brown bring this classic opera to life, with the musicians joining the singers on stage, using the orchestral reduction by Tony Burke.
