Isabel Leonard as Dorabella, Danielle de Niese as Despina, and Susanna Phillips as Fiordiligi in Mozart's "Così fan tutte.'

Saturday at 1 pm, the Metropolitan Opera broadcasts its revival of Mozart's Cosi fan tutte, starring Susanna Phillips, Danielle de Niese, Isabel Leonard, Matthew Polenzani and Rodion Pogossov. 

This Mozart favorite is a comedy about two men (played by Polenzani and Pogossov) who a make a bet with an older friend that their women (played by Phillips and Leonard) will remain faithful while they're away. With the help of their feisty maid, Despina (De Niese), the three conceive a plot to test their girlfriend's fidelity and the resulting opera makes for an entertaining performance.

James Levine returns to the Met this week to conduct the opera company's 1996 Lesley Koenig production.
