Sung in Italian with Japanese surtitles

This famous work by Wolfgang Amadeus MOZART makes up part of the "Lorenzo Da Ponte trilogy", together with "Le Nozze di Figaro" and "Don Giovanni". The title means "all women are like that". The work is said to have been commissioned by Joseph II, the Holy Roman Emperor, based on a line spoken by Basilio in "Le Nozze di Figaro". When it premiered in Vienna, it was such a success that the encores doubled the performance time. Today, it is recognised for its true value as a masterpiece by MOZART, a youthful romantic comedy that shows the subtleties of male and female emotions, human nature and foolishness through incisive human insight, interwoven by beautiful music. The elegant ensemble is the pinnacle of MOZART's operas, with vocal duets, trios, quartets and quintets providing a balanced representation of subtle emotions.

Directed by Damiano MICHIELETTO who is in high demand at opera houses around the world, this production premiered in May 2011, set in a modern camping ground. This new and relevant development of "Camping Così" has won over audiences and become a major talking point. Set in a dense forest full of huge trees and the wafting smell of moss, the conspicuous modernity and playfulness of the colourful costumes and props make the thoroughly realistic stage design a major highlight. This will be an enjoyable production, with the ensemble under the masterful Paolo OLMI featuring the prominent Eleonora BURATTO, as well as Anna GORYACHOVA and Simone ALBERGHINI, all active at the Zürich Opera House.
