La Calisto | John McIntosh Arts Centre

La Calisto is an opera by Francesco Cavalli from a libretto by Giovanni Faustini based on the mythological story of Callisto. The opera received its first performance on 28 November 1651 at the Teatro Sant’Apollinare, Venice, where it drew limited audiences for its run of eleven performances. In the twentieth century it was successfully revived.
Faustini, who was an impresario as well as a librettist, rented the Sant ‘Apollinare Theatre in 1650. He and Cavalli put on three operas there before his death in December 1651 during the run of La Calisto. The theatre was equipped with complex stage machinery intended to impress the opera audiences with spectacle. However, the eleven performances of La Calisto from 28 November to 31 December 1651 attracted only about 1,200 patrons to a theatre that housed 400. The manuscript score was preserved in the Biblioteca Marciana, Venice, allowing La Calisto to be revived in modern times.

COSÌ THE PLAY by Nowra | King`s Head

@Cosi Play – Rehearsal

Cosi (Play)

2nd March – 2nd April

at Kings Head Theatre

The Kings Head Theatre presents Cosi by Louis Nowra directed by previous Artistic Director of Sydney Theatre Company Wayne Harrison

Young theatre director Lewis is staging a production of Mozart’s comic opera Così fan tutte. The catch? The cast are patients from a mental institution, none of whom can speak Italian… or sing. Can this unlikely cohort, including an obsessive-compulsive, a manic depressive and a junkie, pull it off? Or will a patient with a penchant for pyromania spoil all the fun?

As Vietnam War protests rage outside and Lewis confronts the enormity of his task, he begins to realise the frightening and attractive power of madness, politics, theatre and love.

COSÌ FAN TUTTE by Mozart | King’s Head London

@Cosi Opera  – Rehearsal

1st March – 3rd April

at Kings Head Theatre

Have you ever loved two people at the same time?

Ever had an affair? Or wanted to have one?

Who says we’re monogamous anyway?

Everyone is seducible.

Tonight we’re going to put this to the test.

COSÌ FAN TUTTE by Mozart

Two couples. The boys swear that their girlfriends will always be faithful. The girls want to get married to their boyfriends. So where’s the problem?

A man called Alfonso gets the boys to play a game on their girlfriends. The boys just have to do exactly what Alfonso says. For 24 hours. Sounds like fun, right? What starts out as a game quickly becomes a car crash for lovers.

It’s all played out for a TV audience. Come and find out who ends up with who, who throws the first punch and who is still in love with who at the end.

And the whole god-awful mess is set to some of the most sublime music Mozart ever wrote.
A new adaptation directed by Paul Higgins and Musical Direction by Elspeth Wilkes.
