Metropolitan Opera: Mozart’s Le Nozze di Figaro
Airs Saturday, March 26, at 12 noon. The 2015-16 Metropolitan Opera Radio Broadcast season continues with a live broadcast of Mozart’s Le NozzediFigaro – The Marriage of Figaro. Met Principal Conductor Fabio Luisi leads a cast that includes three artists who are singing their roles at the Met for the first time this season: Mikhail Petrenko as Figaro; Anita Hartig as his fiancée, the clever maid Susanna; and Luca Pisaroni as their employer, the lecherous Count Almaviva. Amanda Majeski portrays the long-suffering Countess, a role she sang for her Met debut when this production premiered last season, and Isabel Leonard reprises her acclaimed interpretation of Cherubino, the feisty page. Le NozzediFigaro will be heard live over the Toll Brothers-Metropolitan Opera International Radio Network at 12:00 p.m. CT on Saturday, March 26.
