Editorial Reviews

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.

Format: Blu-ray
This production of this 2009 performance of Cosi fan Tutte from Zurich is set in period as regards costuming but with very crisp, clear cut designs and sharply defined colours for the unfussy backdrops to the action. This gives it a very modern feel as well. In my opinion this very successfully enables the opera to be set in its own period while at the same time enabling it to speak directly to a modern age.

This crisp feel to the production permeates everything. Welser-Most conducts with incisive precision and the orchestra and singers respond to every tiny detail with remarkable accuracy. It is rare to hear so much inner detail without recourse to highlighted microphones. This does not simply apply to instrumental or vocal lines but also applies to significant accenting within those lines. This is a meticulous performance and, as such, is typical of this conductor's normal style. It certainly makes for exhilarating music making here and all of the musicians are up to the considerable challenges involved. My ears tell me that natural brass instruments of Mozart's time are used in conjunction with modern strings and woodwind in this performance. This is becoming a frequent means of producing real brass bite at volume without overwhelming the rest of the orchestra. It works very well adding both drama and excitement as in this performance.

The singers are described on the disc sleeve as `A Mozart ensemble that currently is probably without equal in the opera world' (Badische Zeitung) and that seems to me to be a perfectly fair summary. Malin Hartelius as Fiordiligi has a beautiful voice with just a slight touch of creaminess to the texture.

Format: DVD Verified Purchase
I have become a real fan of the Drottningholm Court Theatre productions of this vintage, and can find nothing I'd want to change. This time, I was just a little thrown by the present-day scenes -- the singers in their everyday lives, and so on --shown during the Overture and at the very end; about these, I have mixed feelings: they jolt the Eighteenth-Century mood, but at the same time they underscore the opera's theme. (The only problem I still have with the opera's title is that I understand it is in the feminine -- in English, it works better: "So Does Everyone" of both sexes. For surely the male characters show up to no better advantage than do the female ones; and, indeed, on this watching what struck me most was how very long Fiordiligi held out against the combined attacks of everyone else.) While I cannot count "Cosi" among my personal favorite operas, it is one of the earliest I saw; I always enjoy its wonderful music; I can wholeheartedly recommend this particular production, and look forward to watching it again at home.
