Daniela Dessì and Delores Ziegler lead the cast in Mozart's brilliant and witty opera, as the two women whose faithfulness in the face of romantic love is ruthlessly tested in Da Ponte's comic tale. Mozart lavishes some of the finest music ever written on the unfolding story of the two sisters' chaotic and fickle love affairs with their two Italian army officers. Sung in Italian with English subtitles.

Musically, this performance has much to recommend it. All six principal singers are wonderful, including those I'd never heard of before (Jozef Kundlak as Ferrando, Adelina Scarabelli as Despina). Daniela Dessì, who went on to sing the big Verdi roles (a recently released 'Aïda' DVD is a case in point), is superb as Fiordiligi. Her 'Come scoglio' benefits from her ability to sing dramatically. Delores Ziegler is an adorable Dorabella (sorry, I couldn't resist the alliteration). 'Smanie implacabili' and her participation in the numerous ensembles were rock-solid. Kundlak sings a melting 'Un aura amorosa' and wonderful 'Tradito, schernito.' Alessandro Corbelli, as Guglielmo, provides a baritone solidity to his ensembles and really shines in 'In core vi dono.' The two male lovers' voices blend admirably. Claudio Desderi is a reliable but somewhat stolid Don Alfonso who nonetheless drives the plot. The star of this production is Scarabelli's Despina. Without crossing over into slapstick, she is pert and knowing in the scenes as herself and funny without resorting to ugly comic voices as the Doctor and then the Notary in the final scene (well, maybe a little bit of a comic voice for the coughing Notary). When all six principals sing together or in duets or terzetti they blend beautifully. This not always the case in some productions of 'Così.' I've never actually seen or heard a bad production of the opera (and that includes one that was set, get this!, on a spaceship), at least from a musical perspective. There is something about it that brings out the best in singers. In this production the acting may be a bit generic (with the exception of Scarabelli and the two sisters), but it is more than serviceable. The ending is traditional - none of this mucking about with a switcheroo as to who marries whom.
This is, of course, a modern instruments version, and the musical presentation is also rather traditional. The tempi are well-judged, not rushed as they are sometimes these days, and the opera unfolds at a comfortable pace. In fact, 'comfortable' is a word I would use for this production. Nothing is intended to shock or titillate. It's just Mozart's opera meticulously prepared and presented. And the comedy speaks for itself.
English subtitles only. The full Italian libretto is included in the booklet. No extras. Sound: Dolby Stereo, and in contradistinction to criticisms of the VHS version, quite adequate for its time.
Recommended, particularly if a traditional production is wanted.
To say (as one reviewer has) that the opera is dull is just not accurate. This isn't Avatar or Star Wars, it's about people and relationships! What is brought out in this production is the fact that all 6 people come out of this experience learning something. Cosi is usually presented as a story about women being tempted and degraded by a master puppetier (the Don). That is not what this production brings out. Don Alfonso and Despina both have issues with their past love life and failures. The Don feels he can tempt any women to stray, but in the end he fails and must rely on Despina. How ironic. She actually seals the deal. Despina's weakness is gold, money and men who have wealth. If you can't have love, at least find someone who is. In the end she finds out that doesn't work that well also. The Don says you can't trust women, Despina says men aren't worth trusting and loving. Two very bitter people.
In the middle of this are the 4 young lovers who are just that, young lovers! They don't have a clue what love means long term, it's all passion and fire. Chivalry, ethics, morality, honor, all strong virtues. Compassion, understanding, vicarious experience are way down the list at this point in their lives.
This is a great opera. As Bernard Shaw once wrote, Cosi is Mozarts most psychologically sophisticated opera. It does not win you over right away, but when it does it does so in the most complete way. But the production must bring this quality out or the opera is just a shell of what it could have been.
A lovely, lovely production.
