Cosi fan tutte is Mozart's classic opera buffa, an edgy comedy on the subject of love and deceit. Pulling on heartstrings and rife with racy humour, Cosi fan tutte strikes the perfect balance between genuine emotion and wittiness. In the opera, the fidelity of two couples is put to the test, their story accompanied by Mozart's fantastic score. As one of Mozart's most beloved operas, Cosi fan tutte has been staged around the world and interpreted in many fashions. For example, for London's majestic Royal Opera House production by Jonathan Miller, the story was adapted for the 21st century and set in modern times.

Mozart's opera Cosi fan tutte, with a libretto written by Lorenzo Da Ponte, debuted at the Burgtheatre in Vienna. First performed for Emperor Joseph II in 1790, Cosi fan tutte had only five shows before it was cancelled due to the passing of the emperor. Even though the opera didn't upset its Viennese contemporaries, early 19th and early 20th century audiences found Cosi fan tutte's story both silly and risqué. It was in the latter half of the 20th century that operagoers started to lighten up and truly appreciate the no holds barred comedy that is Cosi fan tutte.
Cosi fan tutte is often translated as "Women are like that", referring to the allegedly fickle minds of women. In the beginning of the opera, suitors Ferrando and Guglielmo brag about their fiancés' fidelity. Lured into a wager with philosopher Don Alfonso, they decide to put their girlfriends to the test. What ensues are a series of merry and thoroughly entertaining vignettes.
