MANCHESTER - On Saturday, April 13, The Saturday Series will present "Cosi Fan Tutte" from Staatsoper Berlin in the Riley Center for the Arts at Burr and Burton Academy beginning at 7 p.m.

"The music says it all. Mozart is cool." said Doris Dorrie before she grabbed hold of one of the sacred cows of the operatic repertoire and transformed it into a "hippie musical."

"Cosi Fan Tutte" was first staged in Vienna in 1790; it is a timeless opera, one that in fact became increasingly popular in the twentieth century as accusations of its triviality were replaced by greater recognition of its depths. Mozart's delight in juggling the comic and the serious is on full display here, and the opera's adaptability is proof of its strength.

Tickets are $18 for adults, $12 for seniors, and $9 for students and can be purchased at bbatickets.com.

The Saturday Series is co-sponsored by Green Mountain Academy for Lifelong Learning, Burr and Burton Academy, and Northshire Performing Arts.
