Bath Opera’s tour of Mozart’s Così fan tutte

Three Theatres

Bath Opera takes to the road from 7 June to 13 July with Così fan tutte – one of Mozart’s best loved operas…

Mozart’s engaging and hilarious tale involving two engaged sisters is given a new twist in Bath Opera’s 2019 summer touring production. Director Tom Magnone takes one of the 18th century’s greatest ensemble operas on an emotional 1960s roller-coaster ride of love, trust, loyalty, disguise, betrayal, deception, bewilderment, and self-realisation.

When Così fan tutte was first produced in 1790 at Vienna’s Burgtheater, the composer also gave it the subtitle La scuola degli amanti (The School for Lovers). It’s usual title Così fan tutte, literally means ‘So do they all’, using the feminine plural (tutte) to indicate women. It is usually translated into English as ‘Women are like that’.
