Building off of the rich tradition of arts in the Cambridge Valley, Hubbard Hall Opera Theater seeks to bring yet another element of culture to an already bustling center. HHOT plunges into its first season with a production of Mozart's La scuola degli amanti (The School for Lovers), better known as Cosi fan tutte (All Women Do It). This opera is famous for some of the genres' greatest ensemble works and pairs Mozart's quintessentially vibrant music with the libretto of his best collaborator, Lorenzo Da Ponte. As in the origins of the theater, the Hall will host a twenty piece orchestra to complement six Divas and Divos who will bring a taste of Italian melodrama to the forests and fields of Cambridge, NY.
