The Metropolitan Opera’s Saturday matinee broadcasts continue with Le Nozze di Figaro – The Marriage of Figaro – Mozart’s evergreen comedy about a madcap day of intrigue within an aristocratic household.

It stars Ryan McKinny and Lucy Crowe as the wily servants Figaro and Susanna, who must contend with the troubled marriage of their lord and lady, if they want to get married themselves.

Golda Schultz and Adam Plachetka are the unhappy Countess and Count Almaviva, and Isabel Leonard is the amorous pageboy Cherubino.

Maestro Daniele Rustioni conducts Mozart’s brilliant and profound score.

Le Nozze di Figaro will be heard live over the Toll Brothers-Metropolitan Opera International Radio Network at 1:00 p.m. ET on Saturday, January 15. Listen to it on Classical IPR.
