Metropolitan Opera: Le Nozze di Figaro
The 2019-20 Metropolitan Opera Radio Broadcast season continues with Mozart’s brilliant comedy Le Nozze di Figaro (The Marriage of Figaro).
The ensemble cast features Adam Plachetka in the title role of the clever valet, opposite Hanna-Elisabeth Müller as his feisty fiancée, the maid Susanna. Amanda Woodbury is the steadfast Countess Almaviva, Etienne Dupuis is her philandering husband, the Count, and Marianne Crebassa makes her network broadcast debut as the amorous pageboy Cherubino. Cornelius Meister conducts.
Le Nozze di Figaro will be heard over Toll Brothers-Metropolitan Opera International Radio Network at 1:00 p.m. ET on Saturday, February 22.
