The Met: Mozart's 'Così Fan Tutte' Overture

The Met Orchestra, under the baton of James Levine, performs the Overture from Mozart's Così Fan Tutte ("Thus Do They All," or "The School For Lovers"), K. 588, which Mozart first staged at the Burgtheater in Vienna on January 26, 1790; it was first performed in the United States at The Metropolitan Opera ("The Met') in New York City on March 24,1922. This clip is in advance of tomorrow's post, Reconsidering Così Fan Tutte by Prof. George Jochnowitz. [You can read the synopsis here.]



  1. Levine is generally not thought of as a Mozart conductor, but his COSI FAN TUTTE is perhaps one of the best things he has ever done. His COSI is the best one I have heard.

  2. Hello! Someone in my Myspace group shared this
