The story of Cosi fan tutteBackground and biography of Mozart Così fan tutte is an Italian word which is spelled in full as Così fan tutte ossia La scuola degli amanti (“Thus Do They All or the School for Lovers” usually translated as “All Women Do the Same”. The main performance of Mozart's setting occurred at the Burg Theater in Vienna on 26 January 1790. It was given just 5 times previously before the run was halted by the passing of the Emperor Joseph II and the subsequent time of court grieving. It was performed twice in June 1790 with the composer leading the second performance and again in July (twice) and August (once). After that it was not played in Vienna amid Mozart's lifetime. The primary British performance was in June 1811 at the King's Theater London. Così fan tutte was not performed in the United States until and James Morris and Despina is sometimes performed by a mezzo for instance Cecilia Bartoli Frederica von Stade Agnes Baltsa and Ann Murray (Mann 1977). Fiordiligi and Ferrando however must be sung by a tenor and a soprano in view of the high tessitura of their functions. Also Mozart’s operas were written at the height of the classical era in music history; a time of beauty elegance grace and refinement. They were documented in the classical “recitative and aria” structure. The musical phrases are effectively crafted and support each other commensurately with Così fan tutte specifically containing an intricate combination of trios duets quartets and sextets perfectly interwoven with vocal lines.
