A spectacular performance of Mozart’s wonderful opera “Così Fan Tutte” is brought to you by the 16th P.A.F


The outstanding, cheerful opera “Così Fan Tutte” (So do all Women), by Wolfgang Amadeus Mozart, marks the 16-year old success story of Pafos Aphrodite Festival and confirms its status, by once more presenting an artistic performance of international range. 

The spectacular performance of Mozart’s great romance, will take place at the enchanting stage of the Medieval Castle of Pafos, on 5th, 6th and 7th September. It narrates a very daring (for that time) story of exchanging lovers. 

Despite the enthusiasm it received during its 1790 premier from the Viennese audience, producers avoided staging this opera for one and a half century, or altered it by staging a more censored version. However, during the 1950s “Così Fan Tutte” regained its place in the operatic repertoire and since then, it has been, and still is, one of the most famous and anticipated operas. 

The opera consists of two acts, written on a libretto by Lorenzo da Ponte and it is considered characteristic of opera buffa, the Italian comic opera. Love and unfaithfulness, emotion and logic, lies and truth, all co-exist in an artistically skilful way and present in a pleasant manner the tragicomic consequences of an erotic deception. 

Opera lovers will have the opportunity to watch this opera for the first time in Cyprus at the picturesque harbour of Pafos in a unique audio-visual experience which is expected to captivate the audience.  The performances are a co-production between Pafos Aphrodite Festival Cyprus and Opera Futura from Verona with the participation of the Cyprus Symphony Orchestra.
