What does love teach you?
Welsh National Opera takes you back to school with a brand new production of Mozart’s comic opera Così fan tutte, also known as The School for Lovers, directed by Max Hoehn (The Consul).
Set in the early 1970s, four sixth formers discover that falling in love can be incredible, awkward, and complicated in this coming-of-age tale.
The students are given a valuable lesson in love, life and liberty when their teacher involves them in a secret experiment.
Played out to some of Mozart’s most ravishing music, they are challenged to re-think their own identities and relationships with each other as they are confronted with a series of amusing scenarios designed to deceive.
Sung in Italian, with subtitles in English.
