COSÌ FAN TUTTE
ARTS CENTRE MELBOURNE, STATE THEATRE
MAY 14 - 25, 2019
Laugh at love, old man, for you and I both know that women are all the same. But don't say your heart isn't moved when I sing of love...
Mozart's opera about testing fidelity is an intriguing story set to music of impossible beauty. Two men disguise themselves as Albanians and attempt to seduce each other's lover in an elaborate ruse to win a bet, at the urging of the cynical old philosopher Don Alfonso.
Absurd? Yes, but Mozart's luminous music takes the absurd and makes it sublime.
Come along for a merry ride and you'll see that under that veil of farce is a poignant drama about love, faith, loss and sex.
Acclaimed director Sir David McVicar sets this bittersweet romantic comedy in the early 1900s, just before WWI changed the world forever.
Moritz Junge's ravishing costumes and sun-bathed set designs add to the beauty on stage. Leading maestra Keri-Lynn Wilson makes her Australian debut.
