Youthful Cast to Bring Mozart's COSI FAN TUTTE to Life on PBS's GREAT PERFORMANCES, Airing 8/24

Met Music Director James Levine conducts Mozart's barbed romance Così fan tutte, a comic masterpiece about the romantic complications that ensue when a pair of friends decide to test their fiancées' fidelity. For a preview of the opera, follow this link!

Lesley Koenig's sleek production features a cast filled with rising Met stars, including Susanna Phillips and Isabel Leonard as the sisters Fiordiligi and Dorabella; Matthew Polenzani and Rodion Pogossov as their fiancés, Ferrando and Guglielmo; and Danielle de Niese as their feisty maid Despina. Maurizio Muraro is the cynical Don Alfonso on Great Performances at the Met Sunday, August 24 at 12 p.m. on PBS. (In New York, THIRTEEN will air the opera on Sunday, August 31 at 12:30 p.m.)

Soprano Renée Fleming hosts the broadcast.

Così fan tutte was originally seen live in movie theaters on April 26, 2014, as part of the groundbreakingThe Met: Live in HD series, which transmits live performances to more than 2,000 movie theaters and performing arts centers in 66 countries around the world. The transmission reached a record-breaking 15 million viewers.
