Mozart specialist Colin Davis directs an exceptional recording of this witty, sophisticated,compact, comic opera. The superlative cast, including a stellar Kiri Te Kanawa, and the excellent orchestra respond to Davis`s finely polished account of the score, deftly balancing the humanity, irony, pain and humour of Da Ponte`s complex battle of the sexes. Packaged in an attractive clamshell box with full libretto online.
Recorded at the Royal Opera House, London, 27 January 1981.

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.
