About This Project

Mozart’s Così fan tutte begins entirely in the spirit of anopera buffa: Ferrando and Guglielmo pretend to go to war and return in disguise; their fiancées, Dorabella and Fiordiligi, do not recognise them – and embark upon an affair with the supposed strangers. Yet the “dramma giocoso” imperceptibly metamorphoses into a drama of existential dimensions that pulls the carpet from beneath the protagonists’ feet. As in Le nozze di Figaro, Mozart is also able to portray the contradictoriness and complexity of human emotions like no other in Così fan tutte, written four years laterIn this revival of Sven-Eric Bechtolf’s intense production, the young Czech conductor Tomáš Netopil will be presenting himself at Zurich Opera for the first time; on stage, he has an enthusiastic cast – Marina Rebeka, Anna Stéphany, Martina Janková, Javier Camarena, Elliot Madore and Oliver Widmer – at his disposal.
