The Met: Live in HD will return to Guild Hall on Saturday at 1 p.m. with Mozart’s “Cosi Fan Tutte.” A two-act opera buffa, or comic opera, “Cosi Fan Tutte” is set in Naples in the 18th century. Don Alfonso wagers two young soldiers that their sweethearts will prove unfaithful if given the chance. The men accept the bet and tell their sweethearts, who are sisters, that they have been called to the front and must leave Naples. Switched identities and comic confusion follow.
The cast includes Susanna Phillips and Isabel Leonard as the sisters and Matthew Polenzani and Rodion Pogossov as their lovers, with Danielle de Niese as Despina. Tickets are $22, $20 for members, and $15 for students.
The John Drew Theater Lab will present “Voyeur,” a new dance-theater piece by Kate Mueth and the Neo-Political Cowgirls, on Tuesday at 7:30 p.m. The cowgirls are a not-for-profit company dedicated to creating innovative dance theater that explores the female voice. A work-in-progress, “Voyeur” will have its debut this summer. Admission to all theater lab programs is free.
Speaking of the Neo-Political Cowgirls, the group will present a weekend improvisation workshop, led by Johnna Scrabis of New York City’s Upright Citizens Brigade, on May 3 and 4 at the Springs Presbyterian Church. The $80 fee includes a post-class party on May 3. More information is available at email@example.com.
