Italian glamour comes to Scotland with new production of Mozart’s Così fan tutte


SCOTTISH Opera’s new production of Mozart’s Così fan tutte will bring a touch of 1950s Italian glamour, romance and comedy across Scotland.

The stylish update of one of Mozart’s best-loved operas is directed by former Scottish Opera emerging artist Lissa Lorenzo will appear at 19 venues across the country.

This opera, a humorous tale of young love tricked into testing its fidelity, has been transported from its traditional 18th century setting to Italy in the 1950s.

Lissa explained: “We aim to give the audience a magical night of romantic comedy that they will treasure.




“We wanted to find a setting that would be an enticing backdrop for this story, but more than anything I want to honour the exquisite music that Mozart gave us, after all, it’s the music that has captured people’s hearts ever since.

“As a Scot who is passionate about our remote communities and their cultural diversity, I have always celebrated Scottish Opera’s commitment to touring work.

“The Autumn tour is one of my favourites because I know just how important it is to culture lovers in these communities.”

Kicking off in Stirling on September 24 the team of cast and crew will travel across the highlands, islands and lowlands.

Between September and November it can be seen from Ayr to Orkney with Dundee, Elgin, Inverness, Greenock, Oban, Wick, Stornoway and many more venues in between.
