What is the Lesson in Cosi Fan Tutte’s School for Lovers?

February 10 @ 1:00 pm - 2:00 pm

The Palm Beach Opera hosts a panel discussion with Matteo Magaratto and Arina Pismenny in coordination with their 2023 production of Cosi Fan Tutte . The subtitle for Mozart’s 1790 opera Cosi Fan Tutte is “La scuola degli amanti”, or “The School For Lovers”. However, the lesson for the audience is ambiguous. Panelists discuss their thoughts on the moral, or lack of a moral, of the story about a series of tests of fidelity orchestrated by a cynical bachelor for two young couples.

This exhibition and related programming are funded in part through a Florida Humanities Community Project Grant in partnership with the Palm Beach Opera. The library provides parking vouchers to cover the first two hours of parking for the City Center Garage for patrons attending library programs. To receive a parking voucher, patrons must present a parking ticket from the City Center Garage located at 199 North Dixie Highway.
