Met Opera: Le Nozze Di Figaro
James Levine conducts a new production of Mozart’s Le Nozze di Figaro starring Ildar Abdrazakov in the title role and directed by Richard Eyre, whose other Met productions include the upcoming Werther and the hit 2011 staging of Carmen. Eyre’s production of the opera, in which the romantic bonds of a wealthy married couple and their engaged servants are tested over the course of one very eventful day, is set in a stately manor in 1920s Seville. The cast also includes Marlis Petersen as Figaro’s quick-witted bride-to-be, Susanna; Peter Mattei as their employer, Count Almaviva; Marina Poplavskaya as Almaviva’s wife, the long-suffering Countess; and Isabel Leonard as the boisterous page Cherubino.
