In Così, director Tom Goossens and pianist Wouter Deltour take on Così fan tutte, the opera by Wolfgang Amadeus Mozart and Lorenzo Da Ponte. On stage we see two actors, two classical singers, a pianist and a violinist. Each plays a role in this story. Together, they philosophize and discuss the existence of true fidelity. Don Alfonso, a philosopher and also the pianist, tells two young men that their loved ones cannot remain faithful to them. The two men intend to prove the contrary, and together, they set up an experiment. For her part, Despina, the chambermaid and the violinist, introduces the women to the idea of free love. Will Don Alfonso be proved right? More importantly, can love be cast into a fixed structure?
