In Mozart’s brilliant comedy, two sets of lovers test their belief in fidelity. The men accept a wager from Don Alfonso to demonstrate that faithfulness in love is an unreliable foundation for a solid relationship. Aided by the women’s clever maid Despina, each disguised man pays court to the “wrong” fiancée, revealing the men’s jealousy. Is this a bet they really want to win? Da Ponte’s witty libretto and Mozart’s delicious melodies keep the fun moving through an unmatched series of arias, duets, and ensembles.
