  • Stefano Montanari conducts a cast of young and up-and-coming talent, including Thomas Allen, in a new production of Così fan tutte, Mozart and Da Ponte's opera on the nature of love at the Royal Opera House.

    Ferrando loves Dorabella and Guglielmo loves Fiordiligi - but their friend Don Alfonso is sceptical. He offers the young men a bet: given the opportunity, their loves will prove unfaithful in less than a day. Confident of their girlfriends' fidelity, Ferrando and Guglielmo accept...

    Così fan tutte was Mozart's third and final collaboration with the librettist Lorenzo da Ponte, following Le nozze di Figaro and Don Giovanni. Like its predecessors, Così exmplifies the heights opera can reach when the skills of composer and librettist are perfectly matched. But Così's reception has always been more complex than that of the other Mozart/Da Ponte operas, with the opera variously considered immoral, unfinished, cruel or simply odd since its 1970 premiere. Now finally accepted as one of Mozart's masterpieces, it is celebrated as much as its nuanced depiction of love as for its glorious music - a near continuous roll-call of favourites, including the terzetto 'Soave sia il vento' and the arias 'come scoglio', 'Tradito, schernito' and 'È amore un ladroncello'.

    German director Jan Phillipp Gloger presents Così fan tutte, following such previous credits as Der Fliegende Holländer for the Bayreuth Festival and Der Rosenkavalier for the Dutch National Opera. He and his team of regular collaborators take their inspiration from Mozart and Da Ponte's alternative title for the opera: 'The School for Lovers'.
