Opera

Nashville Opera – “Cosi Fan Tutte” 

Humor and music meet the brilliance of Mozart as the Nashville Opera presents his work, “Cosi Fan Tutte.” This comic opera from the legendary composer explores the difference between men and women when it comes to matters of the heart through a story of two young men who enter a bet with an older gentleman to prove their fiancés’ undying loyalty. Described as “the peak of Mozart’s brilliant exploration into the workings of love,” our beloved opera troupe is sure to bring this intriguing story to life just as well as Mozart himself.

Where: TPAC’s James K. Polk Theater

Admission: $26 – $125
