Così fan tutte

Director Claus Guth's production of Mozart's da Ponte trilogy for the
Salzburg Festival reaches its sensational conclusion with his elegant,
stylish production from the "Haus für Mozart." Guth bolsters the unity of
the cycle by making ingenious reference to his stagings of the first two
works, "Le nozze di Figaro" and "Don Giovanni" (both available from
UNITEL). His widely acclaimed production of the trilogy, which began in
the Mozart Year 2006, consolidates Guth's international reputation as one
of the most sought-after stage directors of our time. Among his other
major successes are "Der fliegende Holländer" in Bayreuth and "Luisa
Miller" at the Bavarian State Opera.
Guth assembles a superb ensemble of young singers who toy with love and
trust under the cynical gaze of "ringmaster" Bo Skovhus' Don Alfonso and
his foxy, temperamental sidekick Despina, played by fiery young soprano
Patricia Petibon (UNITEL also offers a 30' portrait of the French
soprano, "With Charm and Voice"). Baritone Florian Boesch and tenor Topi
Lehtipuu ideally complement their frisky partners Miah Persson and Isabel
Leonard. Conductor Adam Fischer keeps the tempi brisk and the Wiener
Philharmoniker on their toes in his layered reading of the score. "Uno
spettacolo superbo," wrote the Corriere della Sera. This production is
another joint project in UNITEL CLASSICA's exclusive partnership with the
Salzburg Festival.
