by Wolfgang Amadeus Mozart
A frothy comedy of manners with an intensely dark take on human nature. Every possible impression of love — from the loftiest to the basest — is explored in this extraordinary opera.
Set originally in Naples, this production updates the action to an amusement park inspired by Coney Island in the 1950s. It has been suggested that the preponderance of woodwinds in the score is meant to evoke the breezy atmosphere of the seashore.
