My 1st (Ever) Cosi
Well, my friends, my spring opera marathon just started on Saturday night when I attended the opening night of Mozart’s Cosi at the WNO.
Surprising as it may sound, it was my first time to see this opera live and in its entirety, and needless to say, I was super-excited. Who are you kidding – I even wore my brand new hoop earrings and a killer hair style for the occasion.
What can I tell you, my friends? With all due respect to Mozart, I have heard better structured and much catchier Mozart’s operas.
With all due respect to Da Ponte, come on now – a fiancé swap? Not to sound like a prude or anything, but has anyone ever thought about morals here?
As for the production itself, my review has just appeared on Bachtrack’s front page, http://www.bachtrack.com/ Just click on the picture of two very contemporarily attired Dorabella and Fioridilgi and read my outside the box-written review.
Cheers to you all and remember: my opera marathon has just started, so stay tuned!
