Così fan tutte

The more you know

Mozart’s and Da Ponte’s final collaboration has delighted, confounded, and rewarded viewers ever since its 1790 premiere in Vienna. Their “School for Lovers” sports a highly experienced faculty and a progressive curriculum—required reading and written papers have all been replaced by experiential learning. There’s a devil of a final exam, though, especially for two young couples about to be married. It’s a lab project in which they dissect the question, “Are you in love, or in love with the idea of love?” They’re also required to work in pairs, and they soon discover that being engaged to someone special doesn’t preclude being especially attracted to someone else.

Mesmerizingly beautiful music and a profound understanding of the heart illuminate this all-too-human situation, in which we can see ourselves onstage, to our discomfort and our delight.

Santa Fe Opera Music Director Harry Bicket and director R.B. Schlather lead this new production.

Join our young lovers in their magnetic journey to understanding life and love.
