Pacific Opera Project to Stage ‘Gone With The Wind’-Inspired ‘Così Fan Tutte’

By Francisco Salazar

The Pacific Opera Project will continue its 10th Anniversary Season with a revival of its wildly popular 2012 “Gone with the Wind-inspired” production of Mozart’s “Così fan tutte.”

The opera, which is written by Da Ponte, is set open on March 28 and runs through April 5, 2020 at the El Portal Theatre.

Audiences will get a chance to see Natalie Polito as Fiordiligi, Stephanie Doche as Dorabella, Blake Friedman as Ferrando, Peter Barber as Guglielmo, Jennifer Lindsay as Despina, and Chris Carbin as Don Alfonso. Kristin Roach conducts from the harpsichord while Josh Shaw serves as director/designer. Maggie Green will costume the show.

This is latest spin on a classic work by the POP, which staged a Super Nintendo inspired “Magic Flute” and its hipster “La Bohème.”
