Mozart: The Da Ponte Operas DVD Set (The Royal Opera)


  • Mozart’s trilogy of operas composed to librettos by Lorenzo Da Ponte delight and entertain audiences with their combination of sublime music and their mix of humour, romance and drama. Cosi Fan Tutte, also known as ‘the school for lovers’, stars a cast of young rising stars, conducted by Semyon Bychkov, in this 2016 production playfully set in a theatre. Kasper Holten’s production of Don Giovanni reveals the inner turmoil of the eponymous antihero, sung by Mariusz Kwiecien.
