Mozart's Così Fan Tutte

Set in Naples around 1790, Così Fan Tutte, one of Mozart’s most famous operas, is a study in contrasts: a story of a friendly wager gone hilariously awry paired with music of luminous beauty.

Having bet their friend Don Alfonso that their fiancées will resist any temptation, two young men are astounded by their lovers’ lack of devotion when courted by two ‘Albanian’ soldiers. Of course, all is forgiven at the end of the comedy. But this farce is underscored by the genius of Mozart’s superb music and keen understanding of human nature.
