St. Paul, Minn. — Tune in 8 p.m. on Wednesday, September 18 to hear the Minnesota Opera's production of Cosi fan Tutte. The battle of the sexes rages on in Mozart's most provocative comedy. As a philosopher engages a quartet of young lovers in a subversive game that confronts their idealistic views of love, the two men disguise themselves and try to seduce each other's lover.

This sublime masterpiece reminds us of love's power to confound reason. For over two centuries this opera was considered risqué, and it was not until after World War II that it gained its place in the standard operatic repertoire.
