BLO presents Mozart's "Cosi Fan Tutte" then PRIMA

PRIMA tickets are now on sale to registered members. Go to www.blo.org/PRIMA and make sure to register for the program!

Click the link for more information on the Boston Lyric Opera page

New BLO production. Sung in English

30-minute pre-performance lecture is at 6:30pm

Performance starts at 7:30pm and runs about 3 hours.

 

The PRIMA event is held at TANTRIC India Bistro on 123 Stuart Street. Directions can be found here: http://www.tantricbistro.com/facts/index.php


Mozart—master of the ambiguities of love—explores the battle between passion and reason through the lens of a playful and, at times, deeply serious farce.

Set on a sunny Neapolitan beach under the looming threat of Mount Vesuvius, two young men gamble that their fiancées will remain faithful, even under the utmost pressure. Così Fan Tutte is light, airy, ravishing and yet, in the end, moving and serious; proof that love is, indeed, a dangerous game.

British baritone Thomas Allen makes his BLO debut as the production’s stage director as well as onstage in his signature role, Don Alfonso. Allen is an established star of the world’s greatest opera houses, recently celebrating his 40th anniversary with the Royal Opera House, Covent Garden.

BLO favorites Caroline Worra and Sandra Piques Eddy return as the sisters Fiordiligi and Dorabella.

As usual, this will be a co-event with the Boston Classical Meetup. One RSVP in either group is enough. Thank you.

    The pre-performance lecture was very good. It helped build the anticipation. The performance was entertaining and took you through such a range of emotions. Excellent orchestra... Perhaps, we next time we can meet others. I was new to the group, so not sure how it worked and we were not allowed into PRIMA due to age. My mother enjoyed the performance, as well. I will look forward to the next one.

      Getting caught in traffic and the parking quandry put me there @ 7pm and just missed the lecture. New to the group I did not see any familiar faces. Great performance, loved the chorus!. We should have a better strategy for meeting next time. Like "under the arch at intermission" for example.

      I also got caught up in traffic and made it to my seat with a minute to catch my breath before the performance. I didn't set up intermission meeting spot as we tried it in the past and failed due to crowds. At least a few of us got to meet at the Prima.

    Boohoo, one of my favourite operas and I'm going to be out of town. Would have been a great night to finally meet the group. Hopefully soon!

    If anyone who alo can't make it wants to go see this some other night, contact me. I have a hard time dragging my current friends to the opera, need to make some new ones :)
