Poor Figaro (Mikhail Petrenko). He just wants to marry his beloved Susanna (Anita Hartig), but his boss, Count Almaviva (Luca Pisaroni), keeps postponing the wedding because he hopes to have a dalliance with Susanna himself. Fortunately, the Count’s wife, Countess Almaviva (Amanda Majeski), and Susanna concoct their own clever plan to outwit the lecherous Count and teach him a lesson at the same time. In the middle of it all is the randy teenage boy Cherubino (Isabel Leonard), who is in love with every woman in the castle and is always in the wrong place at the wrong time. With Met Principal Conductor Fabio Luisi.
