Pensacola Opera Performs Mozart's Cosi Fan Tutte

While in Orange Beach, Alabama for the winter, Doug and I enjoy attending Pensacola Opera productions and Gallery Talks, held on the Sunday afternoon before each production opens. Mozart's Cosi Fan Tutte opened January 23; Verdi's Aida is scheduled for May 1.

We have tickets for the Director's champaign brunch and opera performance Sunday, January 25.

The Penscola Museum of Art hosts Gallery Talks, which discuss the relationship between visual art and music during the period of the opera being presented and feature musical selections from the opera. The talks are free and open to the public.

The cast of Cosi Fan Tutte (from left) Justin Hopkins as Don Alfonso, Anna Steenerson as Despina, Patrick Kelley-Alvarado as Ferrando, Patrick Jacobs as Guglielmo, Sewell Griffith as Fiordiligi and Dawn Pierce as Dorabella entertained at the Sunday afternoon, January 18, Gallery Talk at the Pensacola Museum of Art.

As Doug and I were leaving the recent Gallery Talk at the Pensacola Museum of Art, we stopped to talk with (left) soprano Sewell Griffith, who a few minutes earlier had entertained Gallery Talk attendees. Sewell plays the part of Fiordiligi in the Pensacola Opera production of Cosi Fan Tutte.
