Fabio Luisi Conducts 'Le Nozze di Figaro'
Saturday, March 26, 2016
Tune in at 1 pm Saturday as Fabio Luisi conducts Mozart's Le Nozze di Figaro live from the Metropolitan Opera, featuring Mikhail Petrenko in the title role. Anita Hartig plays his cunning wife-to-be, Suzanna, and Amanda Majeski is the melancholy Countess, troubled by her husband's philandering ways.
Baritone Luca Pisaroni takes on the role of the womanizing Count, who has eyes for Suzanna, and mezzo-soprano Isabel Leonard has been earning raves as Cherubino, the page with raging hormones.
Mary Jo Heath will host the broadcast of Richard Eyre's 2014 production.
