Revenge, disguise, love, trickery and a wedding thrown in for good measure – Mozart’s famous comic opera, The Marriage of Figaro.
Richard Eyre’s elegant production, which opened the Met’s 2014–15 season, sets the action of Mozart’s timeless social comedy in a manor house in 1930s Seville.
Dashing bass-baritone Ildar Abdrazakov leads the cast as the resourceful servant Figaro who is set on outwitting his master, the philandering Count Almaviva, played by Peter Mattei.
Marlis Petersen sings Susanna, Figaro’s bride-to-be and the object of the Count’s affection. Amanda Majeski is the long-suffering Countess and Isabel Leonard gives a standout performance as the libidinous pageboy Cherubino.
Music Director James Levine on the podium brings out all the humour, drama, and humanity of Mozart’s score.
Le Nozze Di Figaro is sung in Italian with English subtitles.
A Met Opera HD Live screening of the 2014 production from the Metropolitan Opera House, New York.
Duration 3 hours 17 minutes, including interval.
