Basso continuo:


Philosophical fable about love, romantic and desperate tragicomedy – Così fan tutte is all that. Borrowing the subject of the Marriage of Figaro from Beaumarchais and Don Juan from Molière, Mozart and his librettist Lorenzo Da Ponte came up with an original subject. The unique plot is based on themes seen repeatedly and cultivated in literature and theatre since their origins, from Ovid to the Commedia dell’Arte.

A bittersweet meditation on women’s faithfulness against a backdrop of disguises, false goodbyes and deceptions – Così fan tutte means “They all act like that” or, in other words, “All women deceive men”. A treatise on feelings wavering between libertinage, tenderness, burning love and resignation, the work is carried along by a score that never deceives or lies, perhaps the most radiant ever, written by Mozart.

This opera was staged at Opera Nova for the first time in 2021.
