LOVE STINKS: Mozart's 'Cossi Fan Tutte' opens Opera San Jose's latest season this weekend.

One can’t help but feel foolish in the face of heartbreak. After all, true love is only an illusion, a ticking time bomb that gradually meets its demise in infidelity, disagreement or just plain boredom. It sounds bleak, but that’s what Don Alfonso, the old cynic in Così fan tutte, is out to prove. Sung in Italian with English supertitles, Mozart’s classical opera begins with a destructive bet as two friends embark on a painful test of romance. Disguises, seduction and extreme situations unfold as each character discovers the truth about themselves and their lovers in this comical yet tragic story. Thru Sep 24.

Così Fan Tutte
Sat, 8pm, $95+
