Cosi fan Tutte

Two ordinary guys, one argument in a café and the chance to win £20,000 on a bet they just can’t lose.  And yet, within a few hours, four middle-class lives unravel in a blizzard of pantomime antics, deception and confusion in this perfect mixture of comedy and tragedy.  It’s a timeless cautionary romp that is as relevant today as when the ink was still wet on the page.

Cosi fan Tutte, Mozart’s glorious musical setting of Da Ponte’s story of the crazy things normal people will do for love and money, is one of the greatest of all operatic situation comedies from the greatest of all opera writing partnerships.

Consensus Opera’s sparkling new modern production features an exceptional cast of singers and a new English translation that is both fresh for our own time and faithful to the original for an evening that is sure to “hold the mirror up to nature”.

Ten years after setting Sheridan’s The School for Scandal to music by Mozart, Consensus will be performing the Mozart opera inspired by Sheridan’s comedy masterpiece.

The production will take place from the 7th to 10th October 2020 at venues in and around Stratford-upon-Avon. Thank you for your continuing support and we look forward to seeing you at our next production.

Stratford Herald reviews

"...what they seem to have mastered is the art of bringing wonderful operatic music blended with well-chosen plays to a wider audience..."

"The cast seemed to have been cherry-picked for the occasion also. Certainly some of the finest singers and actors were among those taking to the stage, making this already excellent production sensational."
