Cosi Fan Tutte

1 – 17 August 2024

Mozart’s comic romance in a luminous production by celebrated director David McVicar.

Can true love survive a test?

If anyone can make the ridiculous sublime, it’s Mozart. Here is proof. The last in his celebrated trilogy of operas composed with librettist Da Ponte, Così fan tutte is an absurd story set to music of impossible beauty.

Two men disguise themselves and attempt to seduce the other’s lover in an elaborate ruse to win a bet.

Come along for a merry ride and you’ll see that under a veil of feisty farce, there’s a poignant drama about love, sex, fidelity and loss. The music is exquisite – Mozart at his absolute best.
