Wolfgang Amadeus Mozart's "Cosi fan tutte" is coming to the Carnegie Room of the Lander Library. The performance will begin at 11 a.m. Saturday. The Lander Met Opera continues its fourth season of live HDTV performances with this new production starring the talented librettist Lorenzo da Ponte. "Cosi fan tutte," which translates roughly to "thus do all women," is a comedic parody on the relations between the sexes and the endurance of fidelity among lovers. Although the story is set in the 18th century, the plot is timeless. The story was considered immoral in much of the 19th century, but it has come to be appreciated as an honest reflection on the human condition. The late NY Times music critic Virgil Thomson said the music is "pleading for tenderness, for human compassion and philosophical toleration of human weakness."
