Summary
"This 6 DVD set contains the three Mozart operas composed to texts by Da Ponte, presented in contemporary stagings by the director Peter Sellars. Sung in the original Italian but relocated to contrasting worlds of late twentieth-century America, Le nozze di Figaro takes place in the ersatz elegance of Fifth Avenue, Don Giovanni in the darker streets of brownstone New York and Così fan tutte in the chrome- & -neon surrounds of a seaside diner."--DVD container
