About Così Fan Tutte

Fickle or faithful? Treacherous or true? Can love survive a test, in jest?

If anyone can make the ridiculous sublime, it’s Mozart. Here is proof. The last in his celebrated trilogy of operas composed with his friend and librettist Da Ponte, Così fan tutte is an absurd story set to music of impossible beauty.

At the urging of a cynical old philosopher, two men disguise themselves and attempt to seduce the other’s lover in an elaborate ruse to win a bet. They’re young, and in love, and quite sure they can prove that love will pass the test.

Come along for the ride and you’ll see that under a veil of feisty farce, there’s a poignant drama about love, sex, fidelity and loss. The music is exquisite – Mozart at his absolute best. The glorious trio ‘Soave sia il vento’ is transcendent.

David McVicar’s acclaimed production is set in the early 1900s, with ravishing costumes of the period. The set is bathed in glorious sunlight, reflecting the last summer of innocence before war shatters the 20th century.

Così fan tutte depends on six talented singer-actors, so this is a chance to hear some of our brightest young talents performing together. Australian stars Helen Sherman and Alexandra Oomens return home to make their Opera Australia mainstage debuts, along with international soprano Nardus Williams. Australian baritone Nathan Lay and New Zealand-Tongan tenor Filipe Manu play Guglielmo and Ferrando, with Opera Australia veteran Richard Anderson as Don Alfonso.
