Buy Tickets For Metropolitan Opera: Le Nozze di FigaroBuy Tickets

Directed by Richard Eyre

Mozart's Le Nozze di Figaro returns to the Met, in a brilliant production by Richard Eyre. Set over the course of one madcap day, we re-join the characters of Figaro, Rosina and Count Almivira from The Barber of Seville, and the servants that have to outwit their increasingly outrageous behaviour. Among the performers are Sonya Yoncheva, Nadine Sierra, Isabel Leonard, Luca Pisaroni, Mariusz Kwiecien, and Ildar Abdrazakov.

What is it about?

It's a complicated plot, so we have decided to break it down as much as possible without giving too much away! We catch up with our heroes Figaro and Susannah, who are at last to be married. However they haven't counted on the arrival of several nefarious characters, including the Count, Marcellina and Dr Bartolo, each determined to break up the happy couple and have them for themselves. However, even more trouble arrives in the shape of the handsome teenager Cherubino, who is also determined to have Susannah - but he also declares his love to all the women in the house.

Meanwhile, the Count and Figaro engage in a dangerous yet hilarious war of pranks, including disguises and marriage contracts. Marcellina, Dr Bartolo's former housekeeper discovers a secret about Figaro which stops her seduction of him. However, Susannah sees their embrace and miscontrues the situation entirely. Together with the Countess, the two conspire to make their husbands realise how much they are loved, and to put a stop to the farcical dalliances once and for all!
