A ravishing, intricately wrought evening of music, humor and emotional depth. An evening like this is the strongest argument for the continued vigor of the Met.

Why See Metropolitan Opera: Le Nozze di Figaro?

Classical & OperaClassic

Directed by Sir 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 mad cap 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 behavior. Two casts will take on Nozze, with conducting duties shared by Antonello Manacorda and Cornelius Meister.

What is the story?

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 its embrace and misconstrues the situation entirely. Together with the Countess, the two conspire to make their husbands realize how much they are loved, and to put a stop to the farcical dalliances once and for all!
