Cosi Fan Tutte (12A)

ROH, Recorded Live

Semyon Bychkov conducts a new production of Mozart and Da Ponte’s sparkling comic opera on the nature of love.

Director: Jan Philipp Gloger
Conductor: Semyon Bychkov
STARRING: Corinne Winters, Daniel Behle, Alessio Arduini

Ferrando loves Dorabella and Guglielmo loves Fiordiligi – but their friend Don Alfonso is sceptical. He offers the young men a bet: given the opportunity, their loves will prove unfaithful 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.
