Home Theaters Saint Petersburg Mariinsky Theater , - Wolfgang Amadeus Mozart "Cosi fan tutte" (drama giocoso in two acts)
|
Duration: 3 hours 20 minutes
World premiere: Mariinsky Theatre, 9 February 2002

Cosi Fan Tutte, a comic tale of love tested by deception and seduction. The title, literally translated, “thus do they all” suggests that women are easily seduced and quick to fly from the arms of one love to another. The opera was a great success in its day, but for most of the nineteenth through the first half of the twentieth century, its subject matter was deemed too racy for public consumption. Since that time, it has returned to the standard repertoire and, according to recent tabulations, is the eleventh most popular opera being performed today.
