A classic story of love under the microscope is given a contemporary perspective in the performance of Mozart’s “school for lovers”. Così fan tutte is a compassionate examination of young love, full of wit and wonderful music, which ensure its lasting popularity.
Così fan tutte was Mozart’s final collaboration with the Italian librettist Lorenzo da Ponte and Jonathan Miller’s production, created for The Royal Opera, brings out the timelessness of this exploration of the human condition.
“[This production] proves that with the right director, conductor and singers, no excuses are needed for Così fan tutte” – WhatsOnStage ****
“Thomas Allen's Alfonso and Rebecca Evans's Despina (less abrasive and therefore more complex than before) are impeccable” – The Guardian
“... Hengelbrock brings the vivacity for which he is famed. It’s ideal for Così fan tutte where timing and clarity are important. Excellent balance — the harpsichord continuo especially vivid.” – Opera Today
“... Miller exploits the comedic abilities of a superb cast to add even more joy to the performance.... the show was almost stolen by Sir Thomas Allen as the suave and manipulative Don Alfonso, and Rebecca Evans as the maid Despina who connives in his plans. Both displayed brilliant comic timing throughout the opera...” – The Express
