About

The direction of Così fan tutte has been entrusted to the choreographer Anne Teresa De Keersmaeker who has chosen to embody each of the characters through both a singer and a dancer. From the preconceived notion of constant and eternal love, the lovers shift progressively towards the more complex realisation that feelings of love are more akin to perpetual motion.

Live from the Opéra national de Paris, Palais Garnier, 2017

Reviews

What’s especially impressive is how Keersmaeker’s game cast of singers seem completely immersed in this style, often mirroring the same moves as their doubles. A dancer might sway and swirl and gyrate around the stage to depict an aria sung by their counterpart, as if an unconscious extension. Indeed, it’s the tension between what is being sung and how the character truly feels that Keersmaeker seems most interested in exploring. Detractors could claim there are two different performances going on. ... With Philippe Jordan drawing excellent orchestral playing from the pit, with witty fortepiano recitatives, this is a most unusual Così which eventually had me hooked.  Mark Pullinger
