Description

Opera in two acts. Libretto by Lorenzo da Ponte

Performed in Italian with Russian subtitles 

The opera was written in 1789. This version was first performed in Perm in 2011. Running time: 3 hours 30 minutes including 1 interval

The first of Mozart’s three great last operas, written in collaboration with Lorenzo da Ponte, has been staged in the ‘authentic’ style for the first time in Russia. It is not only the instruments and vocal styles of the singers that are of the period: even the fabrics and the cut of the costumes have been made using the technology of the late eighteenth century, while the scenery is an exact copy of the interior of a Neapolitan villa in Mozart’s time.

The plot, however, is as fresh as ever: two young sisters, Fiordiligi and Dorabella, become the victims of their lovers’ practical joke. Their fiancés, Guglielmo and Ferrando, wager with their cynical friend Don Alfonso that their fiancées will be faithful to them to the grave, in spite of any temptations. On the contrary, Don Alfonso, who has seen it all, considers that ‘only a fool could bet 100 sequins on a woman’s heart’, and promises to prove it within the next 24 hours. 

The theatre would like to express its gratitude to Alkor-Edition Kassel for its assistance in tracking down the scores 

The principal sponsor of the production is the Prognoz Company
