Cosi fan tutte

Bob Jones University will present Wolfgang Amadeus Mozart’s comic opera Cosi fan tutte March 13-14, at 7:30 p.m. in Rodeheaver Auditorium. This adaptation will be set in the 1950s and sung in English.

Cosi fan tutte, which premiered in 1790, explores the relationship complications that result from deceit and trickery. Military officers, Ferrando and Guglielmo, seek to test their fiancées’ faithfulness by pretending to leave for war and then, while in disguise, convincing them to fall for “new” suitors. Hilarity ensues as the men’s hijinks combined with a supporting cast of companions culminates in a double wedding.

SchoolhouseTeachers.com provides an alternative educational platform easily accessible from home

GRAY, Tenn. -- Awaiting instruction from public health advisors, schools in Brighton and Hove, England, have told parents they have the option to keep their children home from school with authorized absences. Five confirmed coronavirus cases have surfaced in the area. With a long incubation period of up to two weeks, it is concerning that schools are not advised to notify the school as a whole if a student or faculty member is undergoing testing. Information is only to be revealed if a case is confirmed (theguardian.com). This means parents are forced to make a decision that will have a long-term effect on their children. Do they risk sending them to school amid the current outbreak, or do they place education on hold and wait it out?
