Così fan tutte is the second in the series of operas performed in commemoration of the Mozart Year.As the subtitle La Scuola degli Amanti (The School for Lovers) suggests, the opera consists of a frivolous story in which two couples swap partners.However, it is a masterpiece that provides a sharp insight into the delicate feelings of men and women and reveals the true nature of human beings, including their foolishness.The well-balanced ensemble, which expresses the complexity of wavering sentiments, is so beautiful that it could be described as the ultimate culmination of Mozart’s music.Look forward to exquisite performances by the cast of popular singers in this production, too.

The officers Guglielmo and Ferrando are engaged to the beautiful sisters Fiordiligi and Dorabella. The two officers decide to test the fidelity of their sweethearts, they pretend that they have been ordered away by their regiment and bid the sisters a false farewell. Later, disguised as Albanians, the two men court Fiordiligi and Dorabella passionately. The two girls weaken little by little. First, Dorabella yields to her sister’s fiancé Guglielmo, and finally, Fiordiligi also succumbs to Ferrando after much resistance.
