During the event, Director of Opera Kasper Holten interviewed production director Jan Philipp Gloger. The German director discussed what drew him to Mozart's rediscovered classic and what has influenced this new staging of the work.
The Insight also took a closer look at the music, with conductor Semyon Bychkov exploring Mozart's masterful score. Audiences enjoyed exclusive performances of the key musical highlights by several members of the cast, including Jette Parker Young Artists Emily Edmonds and Jennifer Davis.
Così fan tutte was Mozart’s third and final collaboration with the librettist Lorenzo da Ponte, following Le nozze di Figaro and Don Giovanni. It is celebrated as much for its nuanced depiction of love as for its glorious music – a near continuous roll-call of favourites, including the terzetto ‘Soave sia il vento’ and the arias ‘Come scoglio’, ‘Tradito, schernito’ and ‘È amore un ladroncello’.
