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 12:00 p.m. CT on Saturday, February 22.
