John Cox's production of Mozart's Così fan tutte, staged at San Francisco Opera last season, sets the action in the casino of a Mediterranean resort.

The basic outlines of the plot remain constant: the story of a cynical misogynist (Don Alfonso, played by Marco Vinco) who shows a pair of naive guys (Philippe Sly as Gugliemo and Francesco Demura as Ferrando) that their fiancees (Christel Lötzsch as Dorabella and Ellie Dehn as Fiordiligi) would betray them at the first opportunity.

The action mixes hilarious farce and poignant drama, all which conductor Nicola Luisotti leads from the podium. Watch a trailer below.
