On Thursday March 11th, 2021 at 8pm, “Cosi fan tutte” by Wolfgang Amadeus Mozart goes online for “The Thursdays of the Regio” with the Orchestra and Chorous of the Torino Regio Theatre conducted by Maestro Riccardo Muti, for the first time at the Regio Theatre.
Chiara Muti is the director of this 2018 co-production between the San Carlo Theatre in Napoli and the Wiener Staatsoper. The all-Italian sextet of the protagonists is made up Eleonora Buratto, Paola Gardina, Alessandro Luongo, Giovanni Sala, Francesca Di Sauro and Marco Filippo Romano; the stage design is by Leila Fteita, the stage costumes by Alessandro Lai.
According to Maestro Muti, this work is “a mysterious universe full of ambivalences, projected towards a disenchanted and cynical end”; on the other hand, the director interprets Da Ponte’s libretto as “a metaphysical text on the profound question of the ego in relation to the other”. Mozart wrote this masterpiece, the quintessence of the musical theatre, in 1790: a work in which ambivalence is continuous, a multifaceted work as life is. And in fact, the protagonists, Ferrando and Guglielmo, two officers intent on testing the fidelity of their beloved Fiordiligi and Dorabella, are real ‘characters’ of a human comedy immersed in the game of misunderstandings.
On Thursday 11, the broadcast of the work in streaming is free of charge; it will remain available on demand until September 30th, 2021.
