 A Splendid Classic November 3, 2012 By Nancy K. (Victoria, BC) See All My Reviews "This Cosi Fan Tutte is a beautiful performance with an unusually rural setting, filmed as a movie rather than a stage performance. The quality of the DVD is extremely good. I particularly wanted to have Gruberova and Stratas and am very satisfied with this portrayal of a story which is basically, I regret to say, quite misogynist. How unfair to those two young girls!"
