Director Claus Guth's production of Mozart's Da Ponte trilogy for the Salzburg Festival reaches its sensational conclusion with his elegant, stylish production of Cosi fan tutte from the \Haus fur 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 consolidates Guth's international reputation as one of the most sought-afterstage directors of our time. Among his other major successes are Der fliegende Hollander in Bayreuth and Luisa Miller at the Bavarian State Opera. 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 Petitbon. Baritone Florian Boesch and tenor Topi Lehtipuu ideally complement their frisky partners Miah Persson and Isabel Leonard. Conductor Adam Fischer keeps the tempi brisk and the Wiener Philharmoniker on their toes in his layered reading of the score."
