7 Arts Events Not to Miss in Australia for the rest of this Month (July 2016)

Once again it is time to go through a whole bunch of fascinating shows, exhibitions and other arty stuff around the country for the month of July. Here are our picks:

OA Cosi fan Tutte

Cosi Fan Tutte

Mozart’s opera about testing fidelity is an intriguing story to music of impossible beauty. Two men disguise themselves as Albanians and attempt to seduce each other’s lover in an elaborate ruse to win a bet. Absurd? Yes, but Mozart’s luminous music takes the ridiculous and makes it sublime.

Where: Joan Sutherland Theatre, Sydney Opera House
When: 19th July – 13th August
