Jean-Pierre Ponnelle (1932-1988) was one of the most eminent opera directors of the second half of the 20th century. His productions not only graced the repertoires of opera houses in Salzburg, Milan and New York, but also enhanced television programming with original, classical opera films produced exclusively by Unitel. Ponnelle always bestowed particular love and care on Mozart's operas, whether popular works such as "Die Zauberflöte" and "Figaro," or less known works such as "La clemenza di Tito," "Idomeneo" and "Mitridate." Ponnelle's last film project was the Unitel production of "Così fan tutte" with the Vienna Philharmonic Orchestra conducted by Nikolaus Harnoncourt, and featuring the internationally acclaimed singers Edita Gruberova, Teresa Stratas, Delores Ziegler, Ferruccio Furlanetto, Luis Lima and Paolo Montarsolo. "I prefer to produce 'Così fan tutte', a work of great artificiality, in a film studio, since I have a greater range of possibilities there than on stage: for me, the camera becomes another means of expression, which supplements the score." (Jean-Pierre Ponnelle)
"Così fan tutte" contains some of Mozart's loveliest arias and the greatest number of ensembles in any of his operas. Although its libretto is often said to be frivolous, it is a foil for Mozart's lucid and utterly non-Romantic view of the sexes.
