Così fan tutte

Gulbenkian Orchestra and Choir / Nuno Coelho

In the third of three extraordinary collaborations between the genius of Mozart and the creative stage writing of Lorenzo da Ponte, Così fan tutte, an opera buffa in two acts, a jocular drama takes place that many consider to be one of the most inspired and elevated pieces of thought-provoking entertainment in the operatic repertoire. Although it did not enjoy a very enthusiastic reception at its debut, this satire on relationships between men and women would become extremely popular from the mid-19th century onwards. The witty nature of this libretto inspired Mozart to compose some of his most effusive and narrative-driven music for it.
