One of Aarhus Sommeropera's most successful productions to date - winner of the Reumert prize for best opera in 2001. Critics and audience alike gave Mozart's tale of love and lust an ecstatic reception at its premiere in August 2000 and at its repremiere in 2001. Nigel Warrington's stunning production of this popular and charming opera focused on the human elements of the drama. Tatyana van Walsum's atmospheric designs together with a superb cast led to a vibrant and exciting performance.

"Well, such a fine Cosi fan Tutte - stylistically sure, well sung and entertaining." (Ekstra Bladet *****)

"Aarhus Summer opera's version of Cosi fan Tutte is comic opera at its best." (Kristelig Dagblad)

"Mozart himself would have been delighted with the performance of the musicians of Randers Chamber Orchestra - transparent, dynamic, supple and with beautiful wind playing." (Politiken)

"And the singers are totally convincing - as a strong little ensemble - and individually." (BT *****)

"Mozart's Cosi fan Tutte at Aarhus Sommeropera is delightful, dramatically, and even more magnificent, musically......To the general public : see this Cosi fan Tutte, have a glorious evening and learn more about the opposite sex. To Aarhus Sommeropera : revive this production next year." (Jyllandsposten)
