Absolutely wonderful rereading of a masterpiece
1 January 2007 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

I note the comments of the other reviewers, which are not complimentary. I have to add that my views are perhaps coloured by the fact that I saw all three Operas which made up the tryptych way back in 1990, live over the one weekend.

It was a bit like being drunk on Opera, and no doubt affects my reading of this film.

This particular movie, which had been shown on C4 in the UK twice, and had been very popular then had been the subject of discussion between me and a couple of really "old" opera fans I'd met one evening at the ENO.

Now you'd think that most Opera fans might have taken Sellars ouvre and dismissed it, "he's always trying to shock" etc.

Not a bit of it, every one of these three old ladies were full of the Sellars Tryptych and especially so with the Cosi.

I've seen Cosi some ten times now, and almost everyone describes it as a comedy of manners, a school for lovers or some such drivel.

No, what it is, is a devastating look at the matter of trust in life and just how witless men are in their dealings with women.

Sellars has taken it into a NY Diner and jazzed it up a bit, but old Sellars knows a thing or two, he is faithful to the music, and he hires good actors.

This is a beautifully worked, stylishly imagined and well sung Opera. It made me laugh and cry at all the right places.

Mozart would have adored it, so do I.
