O’Hara plays the spirited maid Despina in the Coney Island-set production, opening March 15.

Tony Award winner Kelli O’Hara returns to the Metropolitan Opera stage this season in a new production of Mozart’s Così fan tutte, opening March 15. Take a look at the clip above from a recent dress rehearsal, in which O’Hara sings Despina’s warning cry against men, “In uomini in soldati.”

The production, directed by Phelim McDermott, sets the 1790 comic opera in 1950s Coney Island, with side show attractions, Ferris wheels, and more. David Robertson will conduct the performances, which run through April 19.


Joining O’Hara on stage are Serena Malfi as Dorabella, Amanda Majeski as Fiordiligi, Ben Bliss as Fernando, Adam Plachetka as Guglielmo, and Christopher Maltman as Don Alfanso.

This marks O’Hara’s second engagement with the Met after making her debut opposite Renée Fleming in The Merry Widow. Following Così fan tutte, she’ll head to London's West End to reprise her Tony-winning performance in The King and I before starring in a Broadway revival of Kiss Me, Kate.
