Jealous men and unreliable women: Mozart's 'Opera buffa' Cosi fan
tutte is a masterpiece of its genre. This operatic gem which is part comedy,
part tragedy is a wry study in love, manipulation and trust.
After having cooperated twice before (Le nozze di Figaro, Don Giovanni)
Così fan tutte was the third and last collaboration of Mozart and
librettist Lorenzo Da Ponte. It is a clear-sightedly view of the confusion
of human relations and opens up an abyss that seems to go far beyond
the framework of a 'Dramma giocoso'. In the tension between love
and passion, security and self-negation, faithfulness and betrayal, the couples get lost in emotional chaos.
Mozart illustrates these diverse emotions with his sublime music which is in turn poignant and stoic, heartfelt and romantic.
A fine cast enriches Mozart's stirring music. Under Franz Welser-Möst's fabulous conducting this production of the Zurich Opera House is setting musical standards. In conjunction with the director Sven-Eric Bechtolf, he has developed into one of the leading teams in contemporary music theater.
A great score, a famous production and wonderful singers: this Così fan tutte live recorded at the famous Zurich Opera House is a 'must see'
for opera lovers.
