How much do you trust your partner to be faithful? How much do you trust yourself? Would you ever place a bet on it? Or lay a trap to test your lover? These are some of the eternal human questions that Mozart explores in one of the greatest of all operas. Performed here in a new English translation by John Warrack, Cosí fan tutte tells the story of two young men who are challenged by a cynical old philosopher to pretend to depart for war, in order to test the fidelity of their beautiful fiancées. Returning in disguise, they learn something about the transience of human emotions, inspiring some of Mozart’s most captivating music along the way in an opera that is both comic and profound.
