Opera Australia presents

Così fan tutte
by Wolfgang Amadeus Mozart


The School for Lovers

Chaos and confetti, masks and multimedia: everyone has heard Mozart’s music, but no-one will have seen a Così fan tutte quite like this. Prepare to be moved, entertained and maybe just a little shocked by Jim Sharman’s exuberant new production of Così fan tutte.

It’s a simple story. Three men, three women and three questions. Are all women fickle? Are men any better? Is there any such thing as true love? Mozart’s delicate and sensual score sounds exquisite while asking all the hard questions. Meanwhile, Jim Sharman directs a hand-picked cast of exciting young Australian artists, singing in a lively new English translation. Get ready for a rollercoaster ride through innocence, experience and sexual intrigue in this very modern interpretation of one of Mozart’s classics.
