Cosi Fan Tutte

by Wolfgang Amadeus Mozart

 

Following the sell-out of our centenary production of Madama Butterfly, and the stunning production of Rigoletto, the third opera in Melbourne Opera’s 2004 season was Mozart’s brilliant comedy Cosi fan Tutte.

 

One of Mozart’s greatest operas Cosi fan Tutte (The School for Lovers) matches some of his most sublime music to Lorenzo da Ponte’s masterful and hilarious story about a foolish fidelity test by a pair of Latin lovers.

 

Sell-out audiences were hugely entertained by this witty and elegant new production staged by one of Australia’s leading directors, Hugh Halliday, with beautiful designs by Sonia Cammarata.
