Opera Saratoga Opens Season with ‘Così fan Tutte’

By Francisco Salazar

Opera Saratoga is set to open its season with Mozart’s “Così fan Tutte.”

The opera is set to be directed by Gisela Cardenas and conducted by Ryan McAdams at the Universal Preservation Hall in downtown Saratoga Springs.

The cast includes Maximillian Jansen as Ferrando, Anna Kelly as Dorabella, Michael J. Hawk as Guglielmo, Julia Stuart as Fiordiligi, and Aubrey Allicock as Don Alfonso.

“This season pays homage to Saratoga Springs’ history as a pleasure-seeker’s paradise and betting destination while looking to the future by pushing the definition of what opera can be – and how it can be made – forward. We hope to tempt risk-takers to the festival by dazzling them with reinventions of classics,” said Mary Birnbaum, General and Artistic Director, per an official press release.

“Così fan tutte” is set to open on June 28 and runs through July 6, 2024.
