Mozart: Così fan tutte DVD (The Royal Opera)

‘The school for lovers’, Mozart’s alternative title for Così fan tutte, is given a playful, theatrical treatment by German director Jan Philipp Gloger, who sets this new production for The Royal Opera in a theatre. The four lovers are performed by a cast of young rising stars, with Sabina Puértolas as the fun-loving Despina and acclaimed German baritone and comic genius Johannes Martin Kränzle as the impresario Don Alfonso, who leads the lovers on a role-playing journey full of picturesque settings. Semyon Bychkov conducts the Orchestra of the Royal Opera House in one of Mozart’s most beautiful scores, packed with wonderful arias and ensembles
