In this contemporary take on Mozart’s opera, six college students debate the nature of attraction and fidelity. As their senior year draws to a close and they prepare to go their separate ways, events cause them to reconsider everything they thought they knew about each other — and themselves. This compact English adaptation includes highlights from the original opera, set into a new book that upends the Mozart and Da Ponte classic, accompanied by chamber ensemble.

 

Musical arrangement by Nicholas Lell Benavides* with a new translation and adaptation by Kelley Rourke.
