Cosí fan Tutte
Wolfgang Amadeus Mozart



Monday 4th June 2018
Opera Holland Park

Mozart’s sparkling comic opera of assumed identities and infidelity, Così fan tutte, begins with a bet as Don Alfonso sets out to prove that no woman can be faithful to her lover. Head over heels in a double romance with two sisters from Ferrara, the young soldiers Guglielmo and Ferrando put Fiordiligi and Dorabella to the test, pretending to go to war but returning, in exotic disguise, to seduce each other’s fiancée.

What starts as an innocent game turns into a cruel test as Dorabella and Fiordiligi’s fidelity begins to waver. Aided and abetted by Despina, the sisters’ maid, herself disguised as a doctor, Don Alfonso seems sure to win the bet. A wedding party is planned but who will end up with whom? In a sublime evening of al fresco serenades, vocal fireworks and volcanic emotions, anything could happen.

This special performance is for Child Bereavement UK and within the evening includes wine, light food, programme, goody bag and the opportunity to win an incredible holiday by The Hideaways Club to anywhere in the world!

Please note that all tickets for this charity performance on 4th June 2018 are non-refundable.
