Wolfgang Amadeus Mozart’s Così fan tutte
Mozart’s third and final collaboration with librettist Lorenzo Da Ponte premiered in 1790. For much of the 19th and early 20th centuries, this comedy about testing the ties of young love was rarely seen on stage, its plot being considered “immoral.” Today it is among the most beloved operas in the repertoire.
