Notes and Editorial Reviews

Mozart's ever-popular opera of young love tested in a searching Salzburg production with the Vienna Philharmonic.

A superb cast of lovers is lead by Ana María Martínez and Sophie Koch as the sisters Fiordiligi and Dorabella, with Shawn Mathey and Stéphane Degout as the suitors who test their devotion. English baritone Sir Thomas Allen and American soprano Helen Donath bring all their experience of Mozart on stage to the roles of the wise Don Alphonso and the all-seeing maid Despina.
