Andrei Bondarenko - Final - Song 1

Duration: 05:07

Baritone Andrei Bondarenko from Ukraine sings Rivolgete a lui lo sguardo from Mozart’s Così fan tutte in the 2011 BBC Cardiff Singer of the World final.

This aria was originally written for Act 1 of Così fan tutte, but is normally replaced by ‘Non siate ritrosi’. It is sung by Guglielmo (with Ferrando in attendance) on their first attempt in disguise as 'Albanians' to woo each other's fiancées. He tries to impress the girls with their wondrous merits – claiming that they are handsome, rich, strong and excellent singers and dancers.
