Cosi fan tutte by Amadeus Mozart, English Touring Opera
Hackney Empire London and touring

‘A delightfully fresh and serious Cosi fan tutte, directed with remarkable fidelity to the the text …
Certainly worth travelling to see.’
The Sunday Times

‘Timothy Walker, the producer of ETO’s new Cosi is a fine actor. It’s no suprise then, that he mines subtle detail from the text, that he shapes the narrative with a due regard for the accumulating lesser crises which build to the work’s showdown. He lays bare the evolving emotional and dramatic complexities with a crystal clear clarity, all of which fuel Mozart’s enigmatic masterpiece. Walker has forged an ensemble of singers who rise to the crucial exchanges with a sure sense of their purpose … There’s no doubting the star quality of Amanda Echalaz’s subtly observed, mettlesome and moving Fiordilgi.
Opera Magazine

‘Thoroughly enjoyable sell-out production.’
Bristol Evening Post

‘Fruity tutte is a joy. This opera is a tour-de-force.’
Birmingham Post

‘A refreshingly undistorted production by Timothy Walker which was neither too funny nor too serious, but relied on good youthful acting to point Mozart’s moral.’
The Glasgow Herald

‘This new Cosi reveals why the company is such a precious asset … Timothy Walker, an actor new to opera production makes a good start here. Highly recommended.’
