Brian, this is tremendous! Scores too!

Do you know of any articles discussing Cosi's ambiguous ending (who pairs off with whom, etc.)?

I'm not sure of any, though there were quite a few scholarly articles (via JSTOR and Google Scholar) on Cosi that I couldn't get to because they required either payment or membership to download. Funny to think Fiordiligi/Guglielmo and Dorabella/Ferrando may not realign after all--would that make the piece more cynical or hysterical? I'm not sure!
