Mozart’s classic comedy comes to Holmfirth

Dulwich Opera Company present Mozart’s Così fan tutte

Dulwich Opera Company are making their debut at Holmfirth Civic Hall this September with Mozart’s classic tale of love and deception. Awarded 4 stars by The Stage, which described it as having ‘pace and panache’ and being ‘lively and convincingly detailed’, this production presents an elegant take on the comedy, set to some of Mozart’s most glorious music.

Featuring a cast of young professional singers, the opera is performed in the original Italian with English surtitles. The creative team is headed by international opera director, Ptolemy Christie, and designer Leah Sams.

Premièred in 1790, Mozart’s Così fan tutte remains one of the most loved and performed of all operas around the world, and includes the famous arias “Come scoglio” and “Un’aura amorosa”, as well as the divine trio “Soave sia il vento”. Also known as “The school for lovers”, the opera tells a wry and light-hearted tale of love, fidelity, and human infallibility.

Described by Opera Today as “compulsive and enjoyable”, this young and vibrant company look forward to bringing their acclaimed production of Mozart’s comedy to Yorkshire building on 2017’s first successful tour away from their base in London.
