Mozart’s Cosi fan tutte (“Thus do all women”) will be professionally sung and staged by the Connecticut Lyric Opera with the 20-piece Connecticut Virtuosi Chamber Orchestra on Friday, March 16, at 7:30 p.m., at the MHS Performing Arts Center, 200 LaRosa Lane, Middletown.

The Greater Middletown Concert Association is bringing Cosi fan tutti as the second opera in its three-opera series of 2011-2012. Verdi’s Otello will be presented on Friday, May 11, at 7:30 p.m. as the third opera in the series.

Cosi fan tutte, the perfect opera for those who prefer their laughter sandwiched with a slice of wry, is a deliciously ironic look at the foibles of love. It begins with two sisters, their fiancés, and a bet – Will the women be faithful?

Thus the audience enters a world of disguises and trickery in which the women…and Love itself…are put to the test. Mozart’s genius turns a farce into a scintillating blend of thought provoking humor. The opera is sung in the original Italian with English supertitles projected above the stage.

Tickets are $40 (front) and $35 (rear). Student and group prices are available. Call 860 347-4887 or 860 346-3369 for reservations and tickets. Major credit cards are accepted.
