Oslo Operafestival – Cosi fan tutte by Mozart

Oslo Operafestival – Cosi fan tutte by Mozart

Cosi fan tutte or So do they all

Fiordiligi + Guglielmo. Dorabella + Ferrando. No one in the world is as in love as these two couples, and their love will last a lifetime. That is why it doesn’t matter at all when the boys enter into a bet with Don “The Puppet Master” Alfonso, who are pulling the strings and controlling the game, to prove that they have got the most loyal sweethearts in the world. It is easy to promise eternal love and faithfulness when you are in love and stare into your beloved’s eyes; It is another matter entirely to keep such a promise when your sweetheart is far away and new interesting love prospects are proposing their interest – especially when these new lovers are strangely familiar.

Mozart’s Cosi fan tutte is a classical comedy concerning whether the storming emotions of being in love might be more important than the subject of one’s affections. The plot also contains a more serious undertext concerning the uncertainty following a crush. Can you trust that the person you’re in love with loves you back as fiercely as you do? Or, if you have mixed emotions, do everyone else as well?

This production will feature a new translation from Italian to Norwegian. This new translation will set Mozart’s story in our time, in the same time as all the elements of a true Mozart-opera have been safeguarded.

A huge thank you to Operahøgskolen by Tore Dingstad for a nice collaboration. Adresse
