Cosi Fan Tutte 2017

Following the success of our OffWestEnd Finalist Best Opera Production of Cosi Fan Tutte in 2017, we revived the production in 2018 both as a Street Opera and also adapted for the Merton Arts Space in Wimbledon Library. The Merton Arts Space performance enabled our audience to experience our innovative re-imagining in a new immersive context and also involved less walking than our high street performances! 

It’s a story about love and friendship, cheating, and testing the one you love. Our one hour adaptation has an accessible modern English text by Joanna Turner with the music re-written for accordion, violin and bassoon by Leo Geyer, telling the story in a way that makes it feel as if it is truly happening here and now.

2018’s production was kindly funded by The Humphrey Richardson Taylor Charitable Trust and private donors.

Cosi Fan Tutte 2017







[Don Alfonso’s] challenge, and their resulting bet, comes about so naturally in this context that I began to wonder why every Cosi doesn’t start in a pub beer garden.- , Operissima
Mitcham has probably witnessed these human scenes many times before; the only change is that, this time, Mozart is involved, and everybody sings.- , Operissima
What amazed me about the Baseless Fabric experience is how naturally this production fits into its locations, a testament to the scrupulous research work which must have gone on beforehand, as well as the quality of everyone’s performances.- , Operissima
Sung in a beautifully natural, contemporary English libretto by Joanna Turner- , Operissima
Leo Geyer and Joanna Turner have done a wonderful job in creating a modern libretto and production suitable for this High Street Format Opera- ,
This production is tremendous fun- ,
