In Mozarts great comic opera COSI FAN TUTTE, the cynical bachelor Don Alfonso makes a wager with two young Italian army officers, Ferrando and Gugliemo, that their fiancés, sisters Dorabella and Fiordiligi, cannot remain faithful to them. On the pretense of being called to war, the young men disguise themselves as Albanian noblemen and begin to woo the sisters. After a number of comic failures, Dorabella and Fiordiligi succumb to the amorous advances, and the men must concede that cosi fan tutte: thus are all women. In this 1998 production, under the musical direction of Nikolaus Harnoncourt, Delore Ziegler and Edita Gruberova play the roles of the fickle sisters and Luis Lima and Ferruccio Furlanetto act as the deceptive lovers.
