Wolfgang Amadeus Mozart Così Fan Tutte, ossia La Scuola degli Amanti, K.588
Following its productions of Le Nozze di Figaro and Don Giovanni, the Teatru Manoel concludes the brilliant opera
trilogy resulting from the collaboration between Mozart and the Italian librettist with its production of Così Fan Tutte.
Telling the tale of two officers who disguise themselves and attempt to seduce each other’s fiancée to find out whether they would remain faithful, the opera was initially well-received, but subsequently rarely performed due to changing sensibilities leading to it being perceived as too risqué and immoral.
Only by the mid-20th century did it regain its rightful place in the standard operatic repertoire.
LOCATION: Teatru Manoel, Valletta
