GREAT PERFORMANCES AT THE MET: “LE NOZZE DI FIGARO”
January 16, 2015  | By David Bianculli

PBS, 9:00 p.m. ET

 

New York Metropolitan music director James Levine conducts this version of Mozart’s comic opera, staged by Richard Eyre and reset to take place in 1930s Spain. There is some continuity to this Met production: Ildar Abdrazakov has starred in the title role before, to much acclaim,. And Eyre previously staged a Carmen in 2009, which, like this new production, is showcased on PBS. Co-stars include Marlis Petersen as Susanna and Peter Mattei as Count Almaviva.
