Mozart’s sparkling music amplifies outrageous humor as well as the heartbreak of da Ponte’s cynical comedy.
The story revolves around two wealthy, but rather innocent, young sisters and their fiancés who are enjoying a summer vacation in Venice. Their wedding plans are interrupted when, after a few drinks, the men decide to make a friendly wager: they will test their sweetheart’s fidelity by disguising themselves and wooing each other’s fiancées. Soon, both couples face the unhappy consequences of their cruel game. Presented in Italian with English supertitles. This production is suitable for all audiences.
