The morale of Mozart's dramma giocoso is clear: fidelity in women is like an Arabian phoenix; everybody says it exists, nobody knows where. Leaving this defamatory statement aside, Cosi fan tutte is Mozart's most beautiful ensemble opera ever written and a magnificent example of his wit at work.

The Glyndebourne Festival Opera and Cosi have a special relationship: by the middle of the 20th century performances of the opera had become relatively rare owing to its salaciousness, whereas in Glyndebourne Cosi became standard repertoire at a very early stage. In addition, the first audio recording of this opera was made at Glyndebourne (then conducted by Fritz Busch).

This engaging and witty production of 1975 has been singled out by many Mozart connoisseurs for its colourful set, fabulous costumes and abundance of humour in its character portrayals. With sterling performances from the likes of Helena Dose and Thomas Allen, and a carefully remastering, it is a highlight of Arthaus' new mid price label.
