Frankfurt media are getting very worked up over ecstatic acclamation for Christof Loy’s Salzburg Cosi fan tutte.
The production, they point out, has been running in Frankfurt since 2008, with five extended revivals. It’s staple rep, nothing new.
What’s more, Salzburg’s claim that Joana Mallwitz is its first female opera conductor is also bogus. Previous batons were Anne Manson and Julia Jones.
Frankfurt is very upset.
