Don't count on getting a taxi cab afterwards. They were giving priority pick-up to Uber & private cars. I would recommend the Foggy Bottom shuttle & taking the Metro if you can.

Avoid the garage at the KenCen at all costs: a rip-off. At the very least, park at the garage next door for $12. If you can't take the Metro to GW (and then the free shuttle to the KenCen), you can try parking on the street NEAR the Metro and then jumping on the bus. And then you can get a bite to eat before (or after).

I enjoyed the production immensely. I thought the singers were terrific, and the music was, of course, fantastic. The plot is fairly insipid, though, and at 3 1/2 hours, it was a little long, but that couldn't be helped.

Description

Emerging Artist Performances

Wolfgang Amadeus Mozart’s _Così fan tutte _

Libretto by Lorenzo da Ponte

Production from Seattle Opera

The School for Deceptive Lovers is now in session.

What determines true love? Is it faithfulness or simply circumstance? Mozart’s whimsical Così fan tutte is the wry tale of two young men who place a bet on fidelity, putting the women they love to the test through deception and seduction… What could possibly go wrong? In this sometimes farcical, sometimes unsettling comedy, the men pretend to go off to war but return in disguise, each intent on seducing the other’s lady. But when the women don’t react as expected, a lesson in tempting fate is learned by all, and the fickle nature of love and attraction is revealed.

Acclaimed director Jonathan Miller’s modern-dress production, “a compelling piece of music theatre, wonderful in its delineation of Mozart’s mix of comedy and psychological pain” (The Guardian), captures the essence of Washington, D.C. WNO Music Director Philippe Auguin conducts Mozart’s score, packed with biting comedy and poignant beauty.

These unique performances are part of WNO’s ongoing access initiative to introduce new artists to Washington and new audiences to the Opera. Casting for these performances features members and alumni of the Domingo-Cafritz Young Artist Program.

Performed in Italian with English supertitles. Supertitles may not be visible from the rear of the orchestra.
