One of the strangest adaptations of an opera imaginable
Pretty much a direct performance of "Cosi Fan Tutte" by Mozart and Da Ponte, it is the visuals of this Mexican adaptation that will blow your mind. Much of it appears to be shot with very cheap green screens, setting the story in contemporary Acapulco. Instead of being disguised as Albanians, for example, the men in the story disguise themselves as luchadores (Mexican wrestlers) and during many of the arias the singers are doing typical Acapulco things, cliff diving, water skiing, etc. Many of the backgrounds projected on the green screens are vintage films or Mexican commercials from the 1960s, giving this version of the opera an almost hilarious aspect.
