La Petite Bande presents you with Mozart's "Così Fan Tutte". The ensemble's musical quality is combined with flamboyant costumes and an intense acting style that harks back to the theatrical body language of the 18th century.
Musical and visual aspects are thus brought together in a harmonious unity and allow the original vivacity of Mozart's and Da Ponte's magnificent comedy to run wild.
"Così Fan Tutte" is the third of the great operas Mozart/Da Ponte opera's: the most original and the most mature of them. La Scuola degli Amanti, "The School for Lovers" is the opera's real title, and indeed: the four young and tempestuous lovers have a lot to learn... but all six personnages have their own difficulties in this burlesque adventure, until at the end everything unexpectedly comes right.

INSTRUMENTAL ENSEMBLE: LA PETITE BANDE
Sara Kuijken, concertmaster
As was often the case in Mozart's time, Sigiswald Kuijken has arranged the opera's score for chamber ensemble: a string quintet with double bass and two horns, supported by a harpsichord to accompany the recitatives. A welcome consequence is that the relationships between singers and individual instrumentalists have naturally become closer and more intimate, both musically and humanly: a real troupe !
We look forward to greeting you to celebrate and enjoy Mozart's extraordinary music and Da Ponte's fine humour together.
A UNIQUE OPPORTUNITY !!!
