Così Fan Tutte
Mozart’s Così Fan Tutte follows two betrothed soldiers, bound by the bet of a devious philosopher, as they don mustaches and costumes in an attempt to woo each other’s fiancées, prove the women’s fidelity, and finally decide who has the better Groucho impression. The soldiers pretend to be called off to war and bid their ladies adieu, their voices plaintively expressing their heartbreak in a quintet. Then, with the scene set, they return disguised and begin a rigorous regime of begging and flirting, eventually chipping away at the steadfast faithfulness of the brides-to-be.
