Details of Cosi Fan Tutte and the Ticket Luck value
More often than not, recognized by its original Italian name is Cosi Fan Tutte. This is one of the many famous operas under the brainchild of one of history's most renowned artists, W Amadeus Mozart. One may ask, how in today's day and age, could they not find with an equivalent name that is more easily recognizable in English? The answer lies in the meaning of the title which would translate, word for word as, 'all of them do it like that' or 'women do it like that'. The genre of this opera is more inclined towards comedy and the complete title would even leave most Italians fetching for their dictionary books.
Saiko Tagaya is the crooner for the major role in the Cosi Fan Tutte with the backdrop that Shinichi Chiaki no longer enjoys her company. The nickname 'Cosi' is given to this famous opera and thus remains familiar in the annals of the English-speaking globe. Da Ponte was responsible for the script of this opera and it is one of the three he wrote in collaboration with the brilliance of Mozart, the other two being 'Don Giovanni' and the infamous 'Marriage of Figaro'. The emperor at the time, Joseph II had shown a keen interest in Mozart's prowess and wanted him to compose the script. However, as fate would have it, Antonio Salieri began the original portions of the opening acts due to Mozart's ailment at the time. Later on Antonio seized work on the play once Mozart regained composure and signed on da Ponte instead.
The aforementioned collaboration of Mozart and da Ponte in the form of The Marriage of Figaro had somewhat taken a poor liking to its audiences due to the nature of the script. However, when Cosi Fan Tutte was shown to audiences in Vienna in the early days of 1790 for the first time, the gatherings gave standing ovations. With the times changing and opera's becoming a norm for the upcoming modern age, its content was deemed slightly impish if not offensive. Therefore, the repetitions of the show changed over the course of the next two centuries keeping in tune with the prevailing moods of audiences. Today, this play is relished more for Mozart's masterpiece music rather than the script or story itself.
The baseline of the Cosi Fan Tutte revolves around to young women who are in a relationship. A contemptuous and sarcastic bachelor, named Don Alfonso lures the two suitors of these lovely ladies into a bet that their ladies are more than what they bargained for and would court any other man who presses the right chords. Shaken and willing to prove the conniving Don wrong, they both disguise themselves and end up being heartbroken. The stage is set for 18th Century Naples.
In the first act the Cosi Fan Tutte two ladies are shown as the fiancees of two army officers, Ferrando and Guglielmo. Both the ladies, namely Dorabella and her sister Fiordiligi are seen with their suitors in a coffee shop when the cunning Don appears and makes his bet. The men are sent on a sham war and the don sets to work to win his bet by hook or by crook. For this, he bribes one of the ladies maids and the story continues into the second act. There, the men, disguised as Albanians find their way to the sister's house and with the Don's cunning plan unfolding, make the women believe that they are ailing and only their affection can heal them. The maid plays an important role disguised as a doctor egging the poor ladies on. The deception continues and the plot unfolds further leading on to marriage with their new lovers. To prove he won the bet, the Don makes the officers come to the ceremony dressed n half their disguises and half their uniforms. All told, the music makes the opera worth a watch by any standards and the audience will remain intrigued by the continuously changing scenes and extravagant costumes.
