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.]
