Central Piedmont’s Music Department is excited to present Mozart’s classic comic opera, “Cosi Fan Tutte.” In this modern interpretation, the opera is set in the present day on Central Piedmont’s Central Campus, and will be sung in English. Hilarity ensues as our two heroes make a wager that their girlfriends will be faithful to them no matter what the circumstance. Mozart’s beautiful melodies and timeless topics give us no choice but to look and laugh at ourselves honestly. You’ll want to find out who wins this wager.
Performances are March 27 and 28 at 7:30 p.m., and March 29 at 2:30 p.m. in the Halton Theater.
For tickets, visit tix.cpcc.edu or call the SunTrust box office at ext. 6534. Central Piedmont students with a valid Central Piedmont ID will get FREE admission. Non-Central Piedmont student tickets are $5 with a valid student ID.
