Royal Opera House presents...
Cosi fan tutte

< Back to Whats On

Please note: This event is in the past and is available as a reference only.

The Royal Opera House has created a schedule of free curated online broadcasts on demand and available on every device, giving everyone the opportunity to experience Opera and Ballet direct to your own home.


Così fan tutte was Mozarts final collaboration with the Italian librettist Lorenzo da Ponte, who based his story on a variety of sources including Greek myths and Renaissance tales. 


Ferrando and Guglielmo are convinced that their girlfriends Dorabella and Fiordiligi would never be unfaithful. Their friend Don Alfonso doubts this and persuades the men to try an experiment. Ferrando and Guglielmo must pretend to have been called away to war; they will then return in disguise and attempt to seduce their former girlfriends. If they do not succeed within 24 hours, Alfonso will pay them a large sum of money.


To begin with, all appears to go well: Fiordiligi and Dorabella spurn their 'suitors' and the men eagerly anticipate their winnings. But as Alfonso and his assistant Despina step up the pressure and the men try to woo each others girlfriend, things get more complicated. Are the girls as loyal as the men thought? Are any of them the people they thought they were?


Mozart and Da Pontes witty, compassionate examination of young love have ensured its lasting popularity.
