Synopsis

John Pritchard conducts this performance of Mozart's opera at the Glyndebourne Festival, with music from the London Philharmonic Orchestra. Officers Ferrando (Anson Austin) and Guglielmo (Thomas Allen) are certain that their lovers Dorabella (Sylvia Lindenstrand) and Fiordiligi (Helena Döse) are faithful to them, but the cynical Don Alfonso (Franz Petrie) challenges them to a bet that the women will be unfaithful given the chance. The officers thus pretend to go off to war, and return in disguise as Albanian strangers, to woo Dorabella and Fiordiligi incognito. The ladies are initially frosty, but soon warm to their new suitors, spurred on by their maid Despina (Daniele Perriers).
