MADISON, HUNTSVILLE – Encore Opera Theatre is finalizing its presentation of a comic opera by Mozart for performances in Madison and Huntsville.

The theatre group will present “Cosi fan tutte – Love Is Never a Sure Bet” at Asbury United Methodist Church in Madison on March 13 at 7:30 p.m. and at Church of the Nativity in Huntsville on March 14 at 2 p.m.

Admission will be free, but donations will be accepted. The concert performances will feature full orchestra and chorus. John South is handling music direction.

Founded in 2018, Encore Opera Theatre promotes the love of singing and opera. From that point, the Encore Opera Theatre has grown and continues to grow and is now a 501(c)3 organization.

The organization’s vision is to grow into a full opera company and to continue to share a love of opera music with other musicians and the community, according to its website. Their mission involves promoting opera in North Alabama, providing quality performances to audiences and offering collaborative learning opportunities to musicians. (encoreopera.org)

For their next public work, Encore Opera Theatre will present “Cosi fan tutte – Love Is Never a Sure Bet,” the famous opera that Mozart composed. This comic opera focuses on two sisters who each has a lover who is a military officer.

Don Alfonso, a cynical bachelor, makes a bet with the two officers that their girlfriends would fall in love easily with someone else. Pretending to sail away on military assignments, the two lovers disguise themselves and try to win over the other girl. “Love is never a sure bet” as the subtitle says.

Encore Opera Theatre’s staff includes Executive Director Celese Sanders, Artistic Director Erin Huleskamp Bohn, President Sierra Hammond, Jim Sanders and Shane Kennedy.
