Description
Deemed by Classics Today to be "a marvelous, clever, musically superb performance," this 2009 production from the Zurich Opera House of Mozart's "dramma giocoso" adheres to the 18th-century milieu in which his final great collaboration with librettist da Ponte was originally staged. Sir Thomas Beecham once described Cosí as a "long summer day spent in a cloudless land by a Southern sea," and that is apt—if you add subterfuge and myriad hijinks; admittedly, the sublime trio "Soave Sia il Vento" fits his description to a "T."

"A Mozart ensemble … probably without equal in the opera world."—Badische Zeitung

"They employ a complex blend of over-the-top physical comedy—the suicide attempts made during Dorabella's 'Smanie implacabili' are hilarious—and nuanced characterization…. The voices of Javier Camarena (Ferrando) and Ruben Drole (Guglielmo) are supple and viscous, blending beautifully for their duets. Oliver Widmer sings Don Alfonso with a pompous easiness, infusing his recitatives with a hint of a growl. The real success story … is the Despina of Martina Janková, who completely commits to a brassy yet beautiful sound for her many comic disguises within Don Alfonso's scheme. She is a delight. The litmus test for an orchestra playing Cosě, for me, is whether it can control the presto tempo in the overture. Welser-Möst's orchestra passes with flying colors."—Opera News
