Così fan tutte was Mozart’s third and final collaboration with librettist Lorenzo da Ponte, following Le nozze di Figaro and Don Giovanni.
Two young officers, Ferrando and Guglielmo, boast about the beauty and virtue of their girlfriends, the sisters Fiordiligi and Dorabella. Their older friend, the cynical Don Alfonso is sceptical and proposes a wager: if they give him one day and do everything he asks, he will prove to them that the sisters are unfaithful, like all other women. Amused, and confident of their girlfriends’ fidelity, Ferrando and Guglielmo agree.
The men pretend to be called away to war, only to return in disguise: each begins to woo the other’s lover. It quickly becomes clear that the feelings of all four lovers are much more complicated than any of them had thought.
