O’Hara plays the spirited maid Despina in the Coney Island-set production, opening March 15.
Tony Award winner Kelli O’Hara returns to the Metropolitan Opera stage this season in a new production of Mozart’s Così fan tutte, opening March 15. Take a look at the clip above from a recent dress rehearsal, in which O’Hara sings Despina’s warning cry against men, “In uomini in soldati.”
The production, directed by Phelim McDermott, sets the 1790 comic opera in 1950s Coney Island, with side show attractions, Ferris wheels, and more. David Robertson will conduct the performances, which run through April 19.
