Cosi Fan Tutte – 29 Feb & 06  Mar 7.30pm

Mozart’s combination of glorious music and farcical comedy make Così fan tutte an enduring favourite, a story of young love and fidelity. It is in many ways Mozart’s most perfect opera, and was his third collaboration with librettist Da Ponte, following their successes with The Marriage of Figaro and Don Giovanni.

Director Laura Attridge breathes new life into this classic opera. Holly Mathieson conducts the forces of ETO’s period orchestra, the Old Street Band. This is a Così unlike any you’ve seen before.

Sung in English with English surtitles
