Cosi Fan Tutte
From the Theatre Royal, Glasgow.
Germaine Greer comments on the action as Linda Ormiston presents Scottish Opera's new production of possibly Mozart's most controversial opera. It is a tale of two women whose fidelity is tested and found wanting by their lovers, who have disguised themselves after pretending that they have been called away by their regiment. The opera has always excited extreme reactions: is it a heartless misogynist farce or Mozart's most profound and moving exploration of the human spirit?
