Two young couples are trying, each in their own language, to prove how sincere their love is.

Two actors, two singers, a pianist and a violinist. Based on Mozart’s opera Così fan tutte they conduct an experiment in which they search for possible freedom within a love relationship. Can love be cast into a structure? A high-risk business examines both structured love and opera, the structured language of emotion.

Goossens combines an infectious acting style (playing directly to the audience) with luxuriant virtuoso singing and makes very clever use of both: the acting keeps up the pace of the story while the singing provides the emotional colour. And Deltour’s piano is a steadfast guide.
