“Così fan tutte” is one of Mozart’s most beloved operas and tells the story of two men, Ferrando and Guglielmo, who make a bet with the cynical Don Alfonso that their fiancées, Fiordiligi and Dorabella, will remain faithful to them. Don Alfonso, sung by Thomas Hampson, bets them that the women in the opera aren’t as faithful as they claim. A seasoned performer and opera star, Hampson brings his exceptional vocal and acting skills to the role, making Alfonso a complex and intriguing character on stage.
The bet is set into motion, and the two men disguise themselves and try to seduce each other’s fiancées. Chaos and confusion ensue as the women struggle with their feelings and allegiances, while the men begin to question their own motives and desires.
Valentina Naforniţa and Vasilisa Berzhanskaya portray the two sisters with exceptional vocal performances, while Matthew Swensen and Markus Werba bring Ferrando and Guglielmo to life with their dynamic acting. Benedetta Torre plays the role of Despina, the maid who becomes a key player in the game, and the legendary Zubin Mehta leads the orchestra as the conductor.
The production promises to be a visually stunning and musically rich performance, bringing new life to this classic opera. The Teatro del Maggio Musicale Fiorentino is the perfect venue for such an event, with its grandiose stage and exceptional acoustics. Don’t miss your chance to witness this incredible cast in action and experience the magic of “Così fan tutte” for yourself.
