Così fan tutte Résumé Media                        2015-09-16



Qu'obtient-on lorsqu'on combine un livret brillant et plein d'esprit de Lorenzo da Ponte et des airs parmi les plus suaves et chatoyants de W.A. Mozart?  L'opéra Così fan tutte!



Sous-titré La scuola degli amanti (l'école des amants), l'opéra contient tout ce que nous aimons des collaborations entre Mozart et da Ponte, qui ont également produit Le Nozze di Figaro et Don Giovanni:  grand amour, amour perdu, amour clandestin, tentation, défi, réconciliation le tout, enveloppé de mélodies enlevantes et d'humour fin.



L'opéra fut créé à Vienne en 1790 et est rapidement devenu un classique de l'opéra bouffe dans la plus pure tradition italienne.  Ainsi font-elles toutes, comme le dit le titre de l'opéra, nous amène dans une montagne russe d'échanges de fiancés sous couvert de costumes loufoques, le tout orchestré par l'astucieux philosophe Don Alfonso, et encore davantage par la terre-à-terre et pragmatique femme de chambre Despina.



Mozart a, avec Così fan tutte, composé des mélodies parmi les plus mémorables de son oeuvre lyrique:  les airs "Come scoglio" de Fiodiligi et "Un'aura amorosa" de Ferrando, ainsi que l'un des ensembles les plus sublimes de Mozart, le trio "Sova sia il vento", sans oublier l'ouverture qui vibre de tout le génie mélodique du compositeur.

What do you get when you combine a brilliant and witty libretto by Lorenzo da Ponte and some of W.A. Mozart's most melodious and shimmering music? The opera Così fan tutte.
Subtitled La scuola degli amanti (The School for Lovers), it contains all we have grown to love of the Mozart/da Ponte collaborationthey also produced Le nozze de Figaro and Don Giovanni: true love, lost love, clandestine love, temptation, defiance, reconciliation...all wrapped up in soaring melodies and sharp buffoonery.
The opera premiered in Vienna in 1790 and has endured as a classic opera buffa in the best Italian tradition. Mozart's genius shines in every aria but his brilliance at musical characterization blossoms in the ensemble pieces. Thus Do All Women, as the title is translated, takes us on a rollercoaster ride of fiancée swapping through madcap disguises, all orchestrated by the wily old philosopher, Don Alfonso, and even more so by the practical and pragmatic chambermaid, Despina.
Mozart composed some of his most memorable operatic music: Fiordiligi's "Come scoglio immoto resta", Ferrando's "Un'aura amorosa" and one of most sublime of Mozart's vocal works, the trio "Soave sia il vento". And let's not forget the overture which vibrates with the composer's mastery of melodic layering.
Set in the flapper era, Opera da Camera's production is a fun romp through this eternal classic.
