Fabulous production; singers had excellent voices, acting and comedic skills. Elisabeth Russ as Despina was a particular standout....when she was onstage I could not watch anyone else!

Great voices and acting, performed classicly as a romantic comedy, in a very Mozart's way, just a little bit sexier

Description

Conductor: Barbara Day Turner

Director: Douglas Nagel

In 1700s Naples, Don Alfonso convinces two young officers, Ferrando and Guglielmo, to test the faithfulness of their girlfriends, Dorabella and Fiordiligi. Mozart wrote some of his most sublime operatic music for Così fan tutte, as he and master librettist Lorenzo da Ponte poked fun at a practice well known to the Viennese Court—girlfriend (and boyfriend) swapping. It’s betrayal of love, with a happy ending.
