|Lecturer Jenny Lorentowicz|
The night started with a half hour talk by guest speaker Jenny Lorentowicz. Lorentowicz covered the history and background of the opera Cosi fan tutte and it's creator, Wolfgang Amadeus Mozart. She also talked about the time period the opera was written and the opera's recent interpretation by director Atom Egoyan. It was interesting to learn about Mozart's most performed operas, and how it wasn't until the 20th century, the theatrical performance and musical score of Cosi fan tutte was finally performed together.

Overall, Mozarts' Cosi fan tutte, directed by Atom Egoyan was amazing! It would've been wonderful to see the performance in it's entirety without interruption but, it was also interesting to see it this way. For free! I'm just a little unsure about the costume choices, but I might've thought differently if I saw the opera in full.

And P.s!: There are still tickets left to see this performance. If you can't make it to Cosi fan tutte, there are many more shows this season!
