Abstract

Cosi fan tutte was commissioned by Emperor Joseph II after a revival of Le nozze di Figaro in August 1789. It is rumored that he asked Lorenzo Da Ponte to base the libretto on a recent Viennese scandal; although, the plot is not new to literary history. This opera buffa premiered in Vienna at the Burgtheater on 26 January 1790 and received five performances before the emperor's death on 20 February when all the theaters closed; five more followed from June to August.
