Richard Eyre’s stylish 2014 production, set in 1930s Seville, returns with both new and familiar stars. Bass Mikhail Petrenko sings his first Met Figaro. Sopranos Rachel Willis-Sørensen and Amanda Majeski—who both made acclaimed Met debuts last season—return to the role of the Countess. Mezzo-soprano Isabel Leonard reprises her celebrated Cherubino, Luca Pisaroni is the Count, and rising star soprano Anita Hartig sings Susanna in Mozart’s immortal comedy of manners and morals.
