Fragmented Frida ****

By: Paulanne Simmons

Considering how few women, until modern times, have become artists, it’s easy to see why Frida Kahlo is such a fascinating figure. Not only is Kahlo noteworthy for her self-portraits that link pre-Columbian and Christian symbols, she was also praised by the likes of André Breton who considered her a feminine force within the Surrealist Movement. And she was the wife of the famed Mexican muralist Diego Rivera.

Cosi Fan Tutte

APRIL 22 AT BAY STREET THEATER
Cosi Fan Tutte is by Wolfgang Amadeus Mozart and features a libretto by Lorenzo da Ponte. In this live presentation, the talented performers of Divaria Productions and Rioja Lirica present a comedy about an exchange of couples in which a philosopher bets with two young friends that women are fickle. Offended by the injury, the two men agree to the bet, and attempt to make their respective lovers believe that they have been called to war. In fact, they have not left at all and return disguised as Turks to put the girls’ fidelity to the test.

Set in 1790 Naples, this production begins with a classical atmosphere but changes as the reality of the sisters does. In the style of Commedia dell’ Arte, the characters create hilarious moments as if in a silent film but exhibit more natural acting in the serious parts of the work.

Cosi Fan Tutte is not only an exchange of couples. It’s about society, how we live, and how we change depending on the benefits we can garner from that change. The first exchange is only the path to show how we can decide to even do something we don´t agree with if it means that we can obtain some benefit from it. Money, pleasure, power…In one word, corruption. And this corruption is in all levels of society; it was there in 1790, and many agree it still exists today.

The cast includes Augusta Caso as Dorabella, Stefanos Koroneos as Don Alfonso, Ashley Bell as Fiordiligi, Victor Starsky as Ferrando, James Wright as Guglielmo and Claire Leyden as Despina.
