ROH – Cosi Fan Tutte (12A)
Semyon Bychkov conducts a new production of Mozart’s and Da Ponte’s sparkling comic opera on the nature of love. Starring Corinne Winters, Daniel Behle and Alessio Arduini.
Fernando loves Dorabella and Guigliemo loves Flordilgi – but their friend Don Alfonso is sceptical. He offers the young men a bet: given the opportunity, their loves will ptove unfailthful in less than a day. Confident of their girlfriends’ fidelity, Ferrando and Guglielmo accept.
The men pretend to be called away to war, only to return in disguise. Each begins to woo the other’s lover. It quickly becomes clear that the feelings of all four lovers are much more complicated than any of them had thought. Don Alfonso watches on as the young men and women graduate through his school for lovers.
