Synopsis

From BAFTA award winning director, Chris Menaul, comes the story of Mozart's definitive romantic comedy. A school for lovers must learn that when words fail, only music can speak to the heart.

Adam, a rich industrialist aspires to a more cultured world. Spurred on by playful jibes that he’s little more than a city suit living the capitalist's dream, this frustrated amateur opera singer decides to put on an opera in his lavish country retreat. Once his friends see him belting out the notes, he feels sure it will spell the end to their shallow taunts. It might even help him win the hand of Celia, the female conductor he has been pursuing and is the first to be recruited for his showpiece.

As for the other major roles and the production, Adam brings in the pros. A troupe of sexy, young singers with enough collective sexual tension to literally light up the stage. The opera they will be performing is Mozart's Cosi Fan Tutte, the master composer's fabled romp through the bittersweet themes of sexual infidelity. As the disparate group begins to rehearse, it isn’t long before life starts to replicate art and their relationships flourish and flounder.
