Mission Opera’s Cosi Fan Tutte

MISSION OPERA LAUNCHES ITS COMPANY
WITH MOZARTS CLASSIC COMEDY COSI FAN TUTTE

May 26 through June 2

(LOS ANGELES, CA) March 1, 2019 Mission Opera Company will stage the popular comedy Cosi fan tutte (WA Mozart) as its inaugural production. Founded by Dr. Joshua R. Wentz, Professor of Music at Mission College, and supported by an experienced business and production team, Mission Opera will serve the Santa Clarita and San Fernando Valleys. 

Mission Opera Companys business plan is to provide high-quality entertainment to our Valley Communities, while offering educational and performance opportunities to musicians, said Dr. Wentz. Staging Mozarts comedy, Cosi fan tutte as our first opera sets the tone for more audience-pleasing productions to come.

Cosi fan tutte, sung in Italian (with English supertitles), will be presented as a fully-staged production with orchestra from May 26 through June 2, 2019 at Santa Clarita United Methodist Church (26640 Bouquet Canyon Rd, Santa Clarita, CA 91350) and 
Los Angeles Mission College (13356 Eldridge Ave, Sylmar, CA 91342).

About Cosi fan tutte (The School for Lovers)
Cosi fan tutte is an Italian opera in two acts, composed at the end of the 18th century also known as the Age of Reason. Mozart and his librettist Da Ponte used the theme of fiancee swapping to convey that matters of the heart come from human vulnerability, not via supernatural or spiritual devices. The opera was first staged in Vienna on January 26, 1790.
