Mozart's delightful comedy of the sexes, starring Kelli O'Hara

Why See Metropolitan Opera: Cosi Fan Tutte?

Starring Keli O'Hara

Always a Met favorite, Mozart's comedy returns with production by Phelim McDermott and an all star cast.The third collaboration between Mozart and librettist Lorenzo Da Ponte (following Le nozze di Figaro and Don Giovanni), the work didn't fare too well when it debuted in 1790, with many considering amoral and risque, but has since been thoroughly reappraised. Leading this production are Tony Award-winning star of Broadway Kelli O'Hara, most recently seen in The King and I, and British baritone Christopher Maltman.

Originally set in Naples, Phelim McDermot relocates the action to Coney Island of the 1950s, filling the stage with fire-eaters, bearded ladies and carousels. The story begins with a wager - the wily Don Alfonso bets two young soldiers that their fiancees will be unfaithful to them. The soldiers agree to pretend to be called away on duty and then return in disguise and try and seduce their the other's betrothed. And so begins a comedy of the sexes that would make Shakespeare proud.
