Like The Prose 2021 Day 3

As an English teacher, I know that many teenagers today don’t read much apart from reading texts and tweets and other messages on social media. Today’s challenge was to create a story in bite sized chunks but I thought I would combine the format of social media with one of Mozart’s well-loved operas, Cosi Fan Tutte. The storyline is surprisingly relevant in 2021 – it’s basically a catfishing scam in which two young men decide to test their fiancées’ fidelity by going away from them and then returning secretly in disguise to woo each other’s lover – if they can. Mozart’s opera ends happily, but I’ve left my story on an ambiguous note. If you would like to find out more about the original opera, click here Così fan tutte – Wikipedia
