About Così

‘Let’s aim for the stars!’ It’s 1971 Australia and outside a nation is protesting the war in Vietnam. Inside, a cast of complete amateurs are preparing for a performance of Mozart’s famous comic opera, "Così Fan Tutte," even though no-one can sing, act or speak Italian. Its aspiring young director, Lewis, has just finished drama school and his first directing gig is at a psychiatric facility. What could possibly go wrong?

Welcome to the mayhem of Louis Nowra’s "Così." A darkly funny and deeply moving ensemble piece, "Così" has occupied a special place in the hearts of Australians since Toni Collette, Ben Mendelsohn and Barry Otto starred in the acclaimed 1996 film. With its motley crew of lovable characters, "Così" offers a poignant reminder of the transformative power of music and performance, and how art can make us soar – even if just for a moment.

Sarah Goodes ("A Doll’s House, Part 2") directs this warm-hearted, laugh-out-loud comedy classic with a stellar cast including the star of ABC’s "Cleverman" series, Hunter Page-Lochard; Esther Hannaford, fresh from her acclaimed role in "Beautiful: The Carole King Musical"; and MTC favourite Katherine Tonkin ("Three Little Words").

Audio described performances are on May 18 at 2pm, and May 21 at 6:30pm.
