Following the Florida Grand Opera triumphs of The Marriage of Figaro and Don Giovanni, Così Fan Tutte is the third and final collaboration of the gifted librettist Lorenzo Da Ponte and the brilliant Wolfgang Amadeus Mozart. Two young men make a bet with an older friend that their fiancées will remain faithful under any circumstances. The friend, claiming to know better, arranges for the men to leave the girls, who are sisters, and then return in disguise. The girls waver, and soon fall headlong for each other’s fiancé. When the mean-spirited trick is revealed, all we can know for certain is that those relationships will never be the same. Surtitles in Spanish and English. Performances are Tuesday, Friday and Saturday at 8 p.m. Tickets start at just $12.

Choir Boy by Tarell Alvin McCraney is the the 4th production in GableStage's continuing relationship with Miami’s brilliant young award-winning playwright. When a young man is named leader of the celebrated gospel choir at the Charles R. Drew Prep School for African-American Boys, the sweet harmonies of classical spirituals contrast with the bristling tensions that arise. A music-filled story of masculinity, tradition, coming of age and speaking your truth. “History and secret histories, the things that free us and the things that tie us to the past are all examined in this exhilarating, multi-layered new play from Tarell Alvin McCraney.” – The Guardian (U.K.). Performances are Thurdays through Saturdays at 8 p.m. and Sundays at 2 and 7 p.m. Tickets range from $40 to $55.
