The University of Mobile Performing Arts Series presents Mozart’s comic masterpiece, “Cosi fan tutte,” Thursday, Nov. 7 and Saturday Nov. 9 at 7 p.m. at the Saraland Performing Arts Center.
The performance previously scheduled for Friday was moved to Thursday so it would not conflict with Saraland High School’ football playoff game on Friday.
“Cosi fan tutte,” also known as “Women are Like That” or “The School for Lovers,” is a lighthearted take on love and fidelity featuring mistaken identities, outlandish costumes, and an ill-advised bet. The piece, originally set in 1790s Italy, has been updated to 1890 in Savannah, GA.
University of Mobile students will sing the performances in English. Mobile Opera General Director Scott Wright will lead an orchestra of UMobile students and professionals. UMobile Associate Professor of Music Dr. Patrick Jacobs, also of the New Orleans Opera and Mobile Opera, is stage director. Bruce Earnest, assistant dean of the Center for Performing Arts/School of Music, is producer.
Tickets are $25 for adults and $10 for students, available at the door or in advance at the Center for Performing Arts on the UMobile campus. Group rates are available. Call 251.442.2383 for group rates and preferred seating.
