In the school of love, the learning curve is steep: Don Alfonso teaches that a faithful woman is "as rare as a phoenix". This is what he is bent on proving Ferrando, Dorabella's fiancé, and Guglielmo, Fiordiligi's fiancé. The lesson of this imbroglio is simple: "The happy man looks at the bright side of everything"!
