Don’t Miss: Mozart’s Così Fan Tutte and Marriage of Figaro, August 5-8

Ravinia has been the summer home for the Chicago Symphony Orchestra since 1936 and while there’s been a notable increase in the number of pop music events in recent years, there are still big-ticket classical items to be found. The festival's music director, James Conlon, toasts his 60th birthday with back-to-back productions of Mozart's Così Fan Tutte with the mezzo-soprano Frederica von Stade as Despina, and the Marriage of Figaro with Nathan Gunn as the Count.
