From the Salzburg Festival: "Così fan tutte" (Thus Do They All) by Wolfgang Amadeus Mozart, conducted by Ádám Fischer, directed by Claus Guth. With Miah Persson (Fiordiligi), Isabel Leonard (Dorabella), Florian Boesch (Guglielmo), Topi Lehtipuu (Ferrando), Bo Skovhus (Don Alfonso), Patricia Petibon (Despina), the Chorus of the Vienna State Opera and the Vienna Philharmonic Orchestra. Director Claus Guth's production of Mozart's da Ponte trilogy for the Salzburg Festival reaches its sensational conclusion with his elegant, stylish production from the "Haus für Mozart." Guth bolsters the unity of the cycle by making ingenious reference to his stagings of the first two works, "Le nozze di Figaro" and "Don Giovanni". His widely acclaimed production of the trilogy, which began in the Mozart Year 2006, consolidates Guth's international reputation as one of the most sought-after stage directors of our time. Guth assembles a superb ensemble of young singers who toy with love and trust under the cynical gaze of "ringmaster" Bo Skovhus' Don Alfonso and his foxy, temperamental sidekick Despina, played by fiery young soprano Patricia Petibon.
