A Lafayette organization is putting a spin on classical opera.

L’Opera de Lafayette held a free concert on Saturday at Asbury United Methodist Church where they presented Mozart’s Così fan tutte.

The concert was different in that a narrator helped with the story line to allow new listeners an opportunity to understand the plot despite not knowing the Italian language.

L’Opera de Lafayette started about two years ago and aims to contribute to the musical tradition of Acadiana while providing an avenue for local artists to showcase their talents.
