Così fan tutte, Mozart’s immortal last Italian comic opera, is so ideally suited to the narropera format, that narropera might well have been invented solely for this great masterpiece, so well does it bring to life its details and intricacies.

Narropera is an exciting new presentation of opera: one singer, one violinist and a keyboard player/narrator form a trio of performers, who make truly accessible what is considered to be one of the least accessible of art forms.

Beautiful singing, witty story telling, translation of each aria text, combine to make crystal clear the poetry of the composer and his librettist, in a swift-moving entertainment.

A hallmark of Narropera is the condensing of each opera to 85 minutes and performance without an interval, so as not to disturb the narration of a great story. Star soprano sings eight magnificent arias taken from several of the opera’s characters. Musical and story-telling traditions embrace one another in song and rhetoric, as they have done for millennia.
