A Consensus Opera Production
Two ordinary guys, one argument in a café and the chance to win £20,000 on a bet they just can’t lose. And yet, within a few hours, four middle-class lives unravel in a blizzard of pantomime antics, deception and confusion in this perfect mixture of comedy and tragedy. A timeless cautionary romp that is as relevant today as when the ink was still wet on the page.
Cosi fan Tutte, Mozart’s glorious musical setting of Da Ponte’s story of the crazy things normal people will do for love and money, is one of the greatest of all operatic situation comedies from one of the greatest of all operatic writing partnerships.
Our new production is set in the present day with a new English translation that ensures the characters and plot feel fresh for our own time and faithful to the original.
