What is love? What is fidelity?

The third in the MozartDa Ponte trilogy, Così fan tutte questions the idea of romantic love in all its many guises.

Is it an illusion or the source of all our happiness? Can we long for another and be faithful to our betrothed? Is romantic love a privilege only for the young?

Zoe Zeniodi leads the Queensland Symphony Orchestra and an ensemble of some of Australia’s most exciting singers in this new production directed by Patrick Nolan.

Building on the success of 2021’s The Marriage of Figaro, described as an “outstanding illustration of the joys of 18th century opera transported into the 21st”, this version of Così fan tutte will again reveal just how modern Mozart is. 

Presented by Opera Queensland
