Love always wins?
In comic operas, we expect a happy ending where the lovers, having conquered the obstacles in their path, are united (or reunited) and live happily ever after. But how about Mozart’s Così fan tutte?

About the event
Fidelity, love, attraction and games become badly mixed up with one another, and what, after all, is happiness all about? The fantastic but grim tale of Pelléas et Mélisande is pure Symbolism, and as such appealed to a number of composers, including Sibelius.
This joint concert by the Sibelius Academy Opera and the Sibelius Academy Symphony Orchestra features highlights from Mozart’s opera Così fan tutte, Sibelius’s orchestral suite from Pelléas et Mélisande and solo numbers by soprano Helena Juntunen.
