The direction of Così fan tutte has been entrusted to the choreographer Anne Teresa De Keersmaeker who has chosen to embody each of the characters through both a singer and a dancer. From the preconceived notion of constant and eternal love, the lovers shift progressively towards the more complex realisation that feelings of love are more akin to perpetual motion.
"Jacquelyn Wagner is a poised Fiordiligi, with plenty of power for 'Come scoglio', while Michèle Losier sings a stylish Dorabella...The men are even finer, particularly Philippe Sly's Guglielmo...With Philippe Jordan drawing excellent orchestral playing from the pit, with witty fortepiano recitatives, this is a most unusual Così which eventually had me hooked" Gramophone DVD/Blu-ray of the Month November 2017
