2015's A Little Too Cozy cast updates

A Little Too Cozy

An original production by Against the Grain's Joel Ivany, based on Mozart's opera Così fan tutte

Completing a trio of Mozart “transladaptations” by Against the Grain, this inventive update of Così fan tutte, with a new English libretto by Joel Ivany, presents the comedy of manners as a modern-day wedding reality TV show in CBC Toronto’s Studio 42. A Little Too Cozy was workshopped at Banff Centre in July 2015 as part of the program “Open Space: Opera in the 21st Century” before making its Toronto debut this May 2016.
