L'oca del Cairo – 'Ogni momento dicon le donne'

Extracts | Mozart

What is Mozart's shortest aria? The Champagne Aria from Don Giovanni is a good guess, but that's not the answer. It's actually this little gem from his unfinished opera L'oca del Cairo.

Act I. The stable-boy Chichibio (Máté Fülep) is in a fit of jealousy after having just witnessed Calandrino woo a door key from Auretta's hands. He complains that women say they're models of fidelity but that the pretty ones never stay faithful for long.
