YMMV: Cosi Fan Tutte
  • Crowning Music of Awesome: The quartet Alla bella Despinetta starts the section and then the sisters join in.
  • Crowning Moment of Awesome: Despina, the snarky, world-wise maid who laughs at the dramatic notions of love her mistresses have, is always ready for a laugh and takes everything in stride. Una donna a quindici anni is probably the best example; the music even swells up into a crescendo when she tells them to do as she says to reign like a queen with "you could" and "I'd like".
  • Crowning Moment of Funny
    Dorabella: Our fiances have left for war!
    Despina: So much the better for them: You'll see them return crowned with laurel.
    Fiordiligi: But they might be killed!
    Despina: Why then, so much the better for you!
  • Purity Sue: The soldiers believe their fiancees to be this. Alfonso decides to de-Sue the women in their eyes.
  • Values Dissonance
  • Warped Aesop: Guys, all girls turn into sluts if you don't pay them enough attention. They're women, they can't help it: All Women Are Lustful.
