SATURDAY 26 APRIL at 18.00 GMT on BBC radio 3
Mozart’s Cosi Fan Tutte live from the Metropolitan Opera, New York
According to the BBC ….
Ferrando and Guglielmo are so confident about the virtue of their lovers, the sisters Fiordiligi and Dorabella, that when Don Alfonso proposes a wager that he can prove them unfaithful, they are happy to accept. The young officers are made to pretend to be called to war, before returning disguised as Albanians to woo the sisters. It’s not long before the ladies succumb to temptation, but with the wrong man. Susanna Philips and Isabel Leonard sing the fickle sisters, and Matthew Polenzani and Rodion Pogossov are the men whose confidence in love is shattered.
