Metropolitan Opera Live in HD: Mozart- Le Nozze di Figaro
October 18, 2014
Met Music Director James Levine conducts a spirited new production of Mozart’s masterpiece, directed by Richard Eyre, who sets the action of this classic domestic comedy in a 19th-century manor house in Seville, but during the gilded age of the late 1920s. Dashing bass-baritone Ildar Abdrazakov leads the cast in the title role of the clever servant, opposite Marlis Petersen as his bride, Susanna, Peter Mattei as the philandering Count they work for, Marina Poplavskaya as the long-suffering Countess, and Isabel Leonard as the libidinous pageboy Cherubino.
Richard Eyre (Production); Rob Howell (Set & Costume Designer); Paule Constable (Lighting Designer); Sara Erde (Choreographer)
