“Triumphs in the Mozart repertory have been the norm for Steber, and Fiordiligi is perhaps the most captivating of her Mozart assumptions….she conquers, for her voice retains its bloom and her command of fioriture remains commendable. She enjoys introducing little musical subtleties into her phrasing….she lays a loving caress on Mozart’s sinuous lines and, at every opportunity, confidently propels a bit of bravura, both endeavors lending distinction….”
- Paul Jackson, SIGN-OFF FOR THE OLD MET, pp.108-09

`In a field long dominated by Europeans, Ms. Thebom was part of the first midcentury wave of American opera singers to attain international careers. Associated with the Met from the mid-1940`s to the mid-1960`s, she was praised by critics for her warm voice, attentive phrasing and sensitive acting.`
- Margalit Fox, THE NEW YORK TIMES, 28 March, 2010

`...for some thirty years, until his sudden death in 1975, Tucker`s vocal security, boundless energy, unceasing enthusiasm, and thorough professionalism ensured a level of popularity that necessitated comparisons to some of his greatest predecessors....Tucker sang thrillingly and delivered the goods, communicating his own joy in singing to all who would listen....`
- Marc Mandel, FANFARE, May/June, 1997
 

History

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.
