“Thus Do All Women,” translates the title of this Mozart opera, first performed in Vienna in 1790. What determines true love? Is it faithfulness or circumstance? Mozart's whimsical Così fan tutte is the wry tale of two young men who place a bet on fidelity, putting the women they love to the test through deception and seduction . . . What could possibly go wrong? In this sometimes farcical, sometimes unsettling comedy, the men pretend to go off to war but return in disguise, each intent on seducing the other's lady. When the women don't react as expected, a lesson in tempting fate is learned by all, and the fickle nature of love and attraction is revealed. Run time: 4:05
