Mozarts famous opera is reinvented as a “hippie musical,” by director, Doris Dorrie in a stunning production featuring Dorothea Roschmann as Fiordiligi, Katharina Kammerloher as Dorabella, and Hunno Muller-Brachmann as Guglielmo.  With soloists and chorus of the Deutsche Staatsoper Berlin (Berlin State Opera).  With the Staatskapelle Berlin, conducted by Daniel Barenboim.

Cosi Fan Tutte was first staged in Vienna in 1790, and is a timeless opera that displays Mozart”s delight in juggling the comic and serious.  The opera is performed in Italian with English subtitles.  It was recorded live at the Deutsche Staatsoper, Berlin (Berlin State Opera) in 2002.
