Mozart’s sparkling comic opera of assumed identities and infidelity, Così fan tutte, begins with a bet as Don Alfonso sets out to prove that no woman can be faithful to her lover. Head over heels in a double romance with two sisters from Ferrara, Guglielmo and Ferrando put Fiordiligi and Dorabella to the test, pretending to go away for a while but returning, in exotic disguise, to seduce each other’s fiancée.
What starts as an innocent game turns into a cruel test as Dorabella and Fiordiligi’s fidelity begins to waver. Aided and abetted by Despina, the sisters’ maid, herself disguised as a doctor, Don Alfonso seems sure to win the bet. A wedding party is planned but who will end up with whom? In a sublime evening of al fresco serenades, vocal fireworks and volcanic emotions, anything could happen.
