Discover Opera in Ely this Summer


Discover Opera in Ely this Summer

Tickets are now on sale for Mozart’s comic opera Cosi Fan Tutte. The performance by Swansea City Opera takes place on Saturday 14th July at the Hayward Theatre – King’s School,  Ely – 7.30 pm.

Michael Allan representing East Cambs Arts Festival Society said “This performance by a professional company will be sung in English and fully costumed. The opera contains some of Mozart’s most ravishing music and makes for an enchanting and hilarious evening’s entertainment – a feast for the eyes and the ears”.

Supposedly based on a true story, this comic tale of deception, doubt, devotion and the twists and turns of romantic love, sees how a cynical old man (Don Alfonso) leads two naive officers into a scandalous wager, in order to prove that it is against a woman’s nature to be faithful – ‘Cosi fan tutte’ translates as ‘all women are alike’. As the story unfolds we see how well he succeeds; at first the women are not willing, but later … well you must come and see!

Tickets prices £25 and £21.50 with a limited number of under 16’s priced at £12.
