Cosi fan tutte

Cosi fan tutte

Comic opera in two acts, in Italian, with Hungarian and English surtitles

Così fan tutte. “Thus do all women.” Meaning that they're fickle, as Don Alfonso says in Mozart and Da Ponte's third joint opera. The fiancés passing themselves off as Albanians, the chambermaid disguised as a notary and the many comic situations all make for an amusing comedy. But occasionally the laughter is of the nervous sort...
The sometimes almost cynical piece eventually comes out on the side of love, but while simultaneously showing both its beauty and hopelessness.
Miklós Szinetár's legendary 1979 production, which was performed 204 times over the course of 33 years, is now returning to the stage of the Erkel Theatre.
