In Cosi fan tutte, two Italian soldiers accept a wager and assume disguises in an attempt to seduce the other’s lover as a test of her fidelity. When their sweethearts’ resistance begins to weaken, the men start worrying about more than just losing their bet.

A generous gift from the late Flora L. Thornton has enabled the University to enhance considerably the quality of its opera productions, its summer European opera studies workshops in Heidelberg, and its arts outreach programs. Recent productions include Die FledermausLittle WomenThe Bartered BrideThe Marriage of FigaroLa boheme, and L’elisir d’amore.

Alumni from the all-undergraduate program have gone on to some of the nation’s finest graduate schools, conservatories, and professional young artist programs.
