Così fan tutte

Anne Teresa De Keersmaeker / Opéra National de Paris

After earlier collaborations between Anne Teresa De Keersmaeker and the world-renowned Ballet de l’Opéra de Paris, which has since included two of her creations (Rain and the Bartók/Beethoven/Schönberg repertoire evening) to their repertoire, the Paris Opera has invited the choreographer to direct Così fan tutte, the well-known 18th-century tragicomedy composed by Wolfgang Amadeus Mozart.

Così fan tutte tells the story of two young men who, working with Don Alfonso, a cynical philosopher, come up with a scheme to test the loyalty of their sweethearts.
