Puzzled and perplexed by people’s passion for opera? Or are you already an avid aficionado? Whichever description fits you best, come spend an hour or two diving into the sumptuous music, scheming antics, and penetrating psychology of Mozart’s Così fan tutte (perhaps the most gorgeous opera of all).

Opera Saratoga will be performing this comic masterpiece four times during its annual summer festival at Universal Preservation Hall: June 28 and 30, and July 3 and 6.
