MET Live in HD: Così fan tutte

Saturday, March 31 1:00 pm

A winning cast comes together for Phelim McDermott’s clever vision of Mozart’s comedy about the sexes, set in a carnival-esque, funhouse environment inspired by 1950s Coney Island—complete with bearded ladies, fire eaters, and a Ferris wheel. Manipulating the action are the Don Alfonso of Christopher Maltman and the Despina of Tony Award–winner Kelli O’Hara, with Amanda Majeski, Serena Malfi, Ben Bliss, and Adam Plachetka as the pairs of young lovers who test each other’s faithfulness. David Robertson conducts. A free talk about this opera will be given in the studio on the lower level before the broadcast at 12:15 PM (45 minutes before the start time) by Scott Morrison. Run time 3hrs 31mins
