Cosí fan tutte 

When: Fri., Jan. 22, 8 p.m. and Sun., Jan. 24, 3 p.m. 2016
Price: $35-$55
Guglielmo and Ferrando are soldiers currently set to marry a pair of sisters, Fiordiligi and Dorabella. Their older pal Don Alphonso warns them that women are not capable of being faithful, and proposes a test. The boys should claim they're being sent off to war, but actually disguise themselves as rich Albanians and attempt to woo each other's fianceé. And so they do, but with some reservations. Mozart's two-act opera buffa Cosí fan tutte has enchanted and unsettled audiences for 225 years, thanks to its comic bits and its jaundiced view of women as fickle flirts. Winter Opera St. Louis continues its season with Cosí fan tutte at 8 p.m. Friday and 3 p.m. Sunday (January 22 and 24). Performances take place at the Skip Viragh Center for the Arts (425 South Lindbergh Boulevard, Frontenac; 314-865-0038 or, and tickets are $35 to $55.
