This contemporary production of Mozart's Cosi Fan Tutte was over the top in its clever capture of a classical opera. Combining the world's finest talents in music and vocals with a fresh approach to sets and costumes allowed for unique additions to the humor throughout.
Wolfgang Amadeus Mozart’s _Così fan tutte _
Libretto by Lorenzo da Ponte
Production from Seattle Opera
The School for Deceptive Lovers is now in session.
What determines true love? Is it faithfulness or simply circumstance? Mozart’s whimsical Così fan tutte is the wry tale of two young men who place a bet on fidelity, putting the women they love to the test through deception and seduction … What could possibly go wrong? In this sometimes farcical, sometimes unsettling comedy, the men pretend to go off to war but return in disguise, each intent on seducing the other’s lady. But when the women don’t react as expected, a lesson in tempting fate is learned by all, and the fickle nature of love and attraction is revealed.
Acclaimed director Jonathan Miller’s modern-dress production, “a compelling piece of music theatre, wonderful in its delineation of Mozart’s mix of comedy and psychological pain” (The Guardian), captures the essence of Washington, D.C. WNO Music Director Philippe Auguin conducts Mozart’s score, packed with biting comedy and poignant beauty.
_Performed in Italian with English supertitles. Supertitles may not be visible from the rear of the orchestra.
The performance runs approximately 3 hours, 15 minutes, with one 20-minute intermission.
