It certainly adds to the delicious comedy of the opera.
J Scott Morrison
It is always a big shame that not all the solo numbers are being included on DVD like Muti's, especially when the singing casts are so exceptional.
A. F. S. Mui
In these days of updated productions, it's refreshing to get a beautiful period performance that is a pleasure to see as well as hear.

I borrowed the heading from one of the movements of Bartók's Concerto for Orchestra; it translates roughly as 'The Play of Pairs.' And that certainly is the thrust of this wonderful production of 'Così fan tutte' from the 1983 Salzburg Festival, directed by Michael Hampe with sets and costumes by Mauro Pagano. The mise en scène makes much subtle play of the mirroring of the various pairs in the opera -- Fiordiligi and Dorabella, Ferrando and Guglielmo, Despina and Don Alfonso. Costumes, settings, stage action all tend to come in pairs, with just enough differentiation to make it more subtle than blatant. It certainly adds to the delicious comedy of the opera.

Some months ago I raved about a La Scala DVD of 'Così' conducted by Riccardo Muti but this one, also led by Muti, is even better, at least partly because the singers are better by a slight margin, the stage action is more delicately funny, and Muti is, if anything, more in tune with his cast and the musicians. I find little in this production to complain about. First, there is a simply marvelous cast. I occasionally found Margaret Marshall's tight Supervia-like vibrato a little bothersome, yet her big aria ('Come scoglio') is superb and she is likewise excellent in her Act II scena 'Per pietà, ben mio, perdona' (and the horn player in that rondo also deserves a bouquet). Meanwhile, her blend with Ann Murray's Dorabella in their numerous duets is extraordinary. Murray's 'Smanie implacabili' is delicious. She plays Dorabella as more minxlike than some, adding to the comedy. The two men, Ferrando (Francisco Araiza) and Guglielmo (the young James Morris) could hardly be bettered. They are good actors -- farcical, of course, but that's part of the fun -- and vocally in top estate.

I noted that most of the reviews for this 1983 Salzburg Festival production refer to Muti's 1989 La Scala production instead. In fact, identical reviews are attached to both DVDs, although details of the review will tell which is which. The Salburg Cosi` is also available in a different (and cheaper) edition, and the reviews for that edition seem properly placed.

I was at this performance, so I'm severely prejudiced. I had not heard Marshall in person before and never Bruscantini in person, which was a great treat for me. Muti and Battle I knew as fan who went backstage at their performances and talked to them, got their autographs, if that counts as 'knowing them'....Araiza and Morris I heard many times at the Met, especially Morris from the time he started at the Met...like 'homecoming' that night in Salzburg was. Wonderful memory that I can relive with this dvd. So, yes, my 5 stars are biased!
