POP takes a mulligan on Cosi fan tutte with a new production set in 2020 at a SoCal golf resort with new English libretto by Josh Shaw. (Cosi was canceled mid-rehearsal in March due to the pandemic.) The updated plot follows two girls who are spending their quarantine at a SoCal golf resort and the local caddies have won their hearts. Don Alfonso, a rich, meddling  member of the resort, is looking for some fun and instigates a bet with the boys to see if their girls are truly faithful. Despina, a waitress at the snack shack is there to assist Don Alfonso in the charade. The boys are "furloughed" rather than sent off to war and return in disguise to tempt their girlfriends. Personal protective equipment, facemasks, and social distancing will play a large part in the update, perhaps finally making the disguises and plot of Cosi fan tutte (almost) believable. To ensure maximum safety and compliance, the cast features three outstanding real-life couples who will quarantine during the production.
