Celebrated director Atom Egoyan returns to
the COC, bringing his signature style to this
wry comedy about two couples gambling with
faith and desire. Featuring a cast of exciting
young opera stars and distinguished, seasoned
veterans, this work is full of both farce and
folly. Yet Mozart’s sublime musical depiction of
the honest and intimate struggles of love and
temptation is truly one of the greatest pieces
about relationships ever written.
On stage at the Four Seasons Centre, 145 Queen St. W., Toronto.
Performance time is approximately three hours, 5 minutes including one intermission.
Sung in Italian with English SURTITLES™.
