Mozart

COSÌ FAN TUTTE

aka School of Love


A New English Version by Max Hoehn

adapted from Lorenzo da Ponte's libretto


Commissioned by Welsh National Opera, 2020


"Blow winds, calm and gentle,

Sigh softly and settle.

May stars light your journey,

The waves show them mercy

And sleep nurse their nights."

ACT ONE TRIO


"Goodness gracious! How flirtatious.

So dramatic and bombastic.

Their moustaches are fantastic,

Big and bushy. Nicely curled."

DESPINA, ACT ONE FINALE
