MET New York in Chania: “Cosi Fan Tutte” (recorded), 9th July

9 July Cosi fan tutte

Mozart’s “Cosi fan tutte” was originally set in 18th-century Naples, but Prelim McDermott’s production is set in a 1950s-era Coney Island amusement park. It is McDermott’s vision of Mozart’s comedy about the sexes, set in a carnivalesque, funhouse environment inspired by 1950s Coney Island—complete with bearded ladies, fire eaters… .
The Metropolitan Opera’s new production of “Cosi Fan Tutte” uses sideshow and burlesque performers.

Lydia

I'm Austrian living in Tavronitis, love nature, music, good books, sunsets, the sea, travelling, socializing and more. I came to Crete as a student in the early 70s, exploring the west and southwest of the island with friends by motorbike. When you are young everything is important and, there are lots of things to do...I did. Job, family,children, travelling the world. But I never lost my love for Crete for a minute. And six years ago I ended up in this convenient corner of Crete, not only for holidays, but to stay and haven't regretted it for a minute.
