Così fan tutte

Apr 24, 2014

Saturday Matinee presents the new Metropolitan Opera production of Mozart's Così fan tutte.

James Levine is back on the podium at the Met to conduct for the first time since leading Wagner’s “Walküre” in 2011. 

"This was prime Levine: a lithe, energetic, transparent account of Mozart's miraculous score, brisk but not rushed, polished and profound. His energy seemed never to flag throughout the long evening." - Associated Press

Susanna Phillips sings the role of Fiordiligi, with Isabel Leonard (Dorabella), Danielle de Niese (Despina), Matthew Polenzani (Ferrando), Rodion Pogossov (Guglielmo), Maurizio Muraro (Don Alfonso).

Broadcast Saturday, April 26 at 1:00 p.m.
