W. A. Mozart: Cosi fan tutte - 2014 Hungarian State Opera Directed by: jiri Menzel
Così fan tutte. “All women are like this.” That is, fickle, as Don Alfonso says in Mozart and Da Ponte’s third joint opera. The grooms who pretend to be Albanians, the chambermaid who disguises herself as a notary and a host of comic situations result in an uproarious comedy – but the laugh sometimes sticks in our throats. The faithfulness of two sisters is tested as they are lured by their lovers to fall in love with each other’s fiancés.
Oscar-winning director Jiří Menzel tells us this bitter-sweet story.
