2017 we perform Così fan tutte in collaboration with Marc Minkowski, Ivan Alexandre and Antoine Fontaine.

We will be telling the story of a character who is mysterious and well known, dangerous and amiable, loathsome and loveable. In our interpretation of the Mozart-Da Ponte trilogy it is actually a matter of a single role figure who moves from play to play and binds together the whole: An incredible libertine, in his youth known as Cherubino, in adulthood Don Giovanni, and finally, in old age, Don Alfonso. We are going to create an intimate and improvised scene, exactly like the theatres set up for the fairs and market days where Italian touring theatre troupes of the past appeared. Ivan Alexandre, director
