Notes and Editorial Reviews

The second of DG’s series of seven Mozart operas conducted by Yannick Nézet-Séguin, and initiated by Rolando Villazón, in collaboration with Festspielhaus Baden-Baden. This Così fan tutte enchanted the Baden-Baden Festspielhaus audience when recorded in concert in 2012, with Nézet-Séguin inspiring his stellar cast to feats of vocal derring-do.

An enthusiastic advocate of Mozart’s music, Rolando Villazón takes on the lead tenor role. Das Opernglas hailed his debut as Ferrando, calling him “ideal for the role – we have not heard a more beautiful, better sung, and deeper felt ‘Un aura amorosa’ in a long time.” Starring a thrilling cast of both young and experienced Mozart
Read more opera stars including accomplished soprano Mojca Erdmann as Despina and acclaimed Mozartian soprano Miah Persson and prize- winning young American mezzo Angela Brower as the emotionally manipulated sisters Fiordiligi and Dorabella. Also joining this creme-de-la-creme cast are distinguished Mozart bass-baritone Adam Plachetka as Guglielmo and Italian buffo baritone Alessandro Corbelli as Alfonso. Youthful exuberance tempered by depth of insight make this a rare Così, a must for even the most seasoned opera lover. Read less
