About the Movie
Richard Eyre’s elegant production, which opened the Met’s 2014–15 season, sets the action of Mozart’s timeless social comedy in a manor house in 1930s Seville. Ildar Abdrazakov leads the cast as the resourceful Figaro set on outwitting his master, the philandering Count Almaviva, played by Peter Mattei. Marlis Petersen sings Susanna, the object of the Count’s affection and Figaro’s bride-to-be, Amanda Majeski is the Countess, and Isabel Leonard gives a standout performance as the pageboy Cherubino. Music Director James Levine on the podium brings out all the humor, drama, and humanity of Mozart’s score.
For everyone wanting to bring the greatness of Mozart's "Le Nozze Di Figaro" back to your home after the opera, this is not Figaro. This is a remake of Figaro put into a 1930's setting. That's a long time after this play was supposed to take place in. The only reason this isn't zero stars is the fact that they have English subtitles for those of you that don't speak Italian.
All around great production. Ying Fang’s debut as Barbarina really shines!
