Cosi Fan Tutte

Can love survive a mischievous test? Two men go undercover to seduce each other's girlfriends in this witty Mozart opera filled with mistaken identities and hilarious schemes.

Why Watch

Opera lovers won't want to miss this production of Cosi Fan Tutte, the final jewel in award-winning director Sir David McVicar's acclaimed Mozart and Da Ponte trilogy. McVicar, renowned for his insightful and visually stunning stagings, brings his signature touch to this playful opera. The cast boasts a stellar lineup, featuring rising stars Nardus Williams and Alexandra Oomens alongside veterans like Sydney’s own Richard Anderson.

The Story

In Mozart's Cosi Fan Tutte, loyalty takes a hilarious nosedive as love and betrayal collide. Two confidant friends are convinced their fiancees will remain faithful. They get swept into a gamble with their doubting friend, Don Alfonso. His plan? A twisted game of disguise and temptation: the men will disguise themselves and attempt to seduce each other's girlfriends. Will the women, Fiordiligi and Dorabella, resist the charms of these not-so-mysterious strangers? Or will their hearts wander, leaving the original couples shattered? To find out, watch Cosi Fan Tutte in Sydney. Tickets are available now.
