Mozart: Così fan tutte, ossia La scuola degli amanti, K.588, opera in two acts (concert version)
Wolfgang Amadeus Mozart’s opera buffa Cosi fan tutte describes the human weakness arising from beautiful love, the plot of which challenges people’s aspirations and idealism of love with reality. Almost forgotten after its premiere because of its risqué subject matter, it was not until the 20th Century that the opera regained its reputation in the operatic repertoire.
Hailed as an unparalleled ‘ensemble opera’, Cosi fan tutte has only six characters, each of whom has his or her own aria, with amazing duets to sextets spanning the whole opera, blending seamlessly with the orchestra. Cosi fan tutte marks the perfect summit of Mozart’s operatic composition. This time, Maestro Lü Jia and Macao Orchestra, with a group of up-and rising operatic talents, will present the complete Cosi fan tutte in concert version, as the grand finale of the 2015-16 Season.
Duration: approximately 2 hour and 40 minutes, including one interval
