Come and see Cosi Fan Tutte in development!

Drifting Dragons (2016), at Morrisons

We’re currently in the middle of our Research & Development for Cosi Fan Tutte, working out how to adapt a 3 hour Italian opera with full orchestra to the high street (perhaps not the easiest task!) But don’t worry, it’s sung with a new modern English text, our singers accompanied by 3 instrumentalists (bassoon, accordion and violin) and we’ve ruthlessly cut it down to about an hour.

We’re holding a small sharing of this R&D on Thursday 9th March 2017 to show a few scenes, chat about our modern re-imagining of this classic and how it’ll work on the high street, and to gain support and interest as we aim towards the performances in the summer. If you’re interested in seeing what we’re up to we’d love you to come along (there’s limited numbers for this so please click the sign up link below and we’ll email you to confirm)
