This season Gateway Opera is taking the humor and beauty of Mozart’s three Da Ponte operas and pushing them to their absolute, ridiculous limit. Condensing each opera to just 15 minutes each, this is Le Nozze di Figaro, Don Giovanni, and Così fan Tutte like you’ve never seen them before, filled with witty absurdity, frantic plot exposition, and – of course – a glorious aria or two.
