This month, Luca Pisaroni returns to the Metropolitan Opera as Figaro in Sir Richard Eyre’s enchanting production of Le Nozze di Figaro. Pisaroni has an extensive history singing in Mozart’s timeless social comedy, having made his professional operatic debut in the title role of Le Nozze di Figaro in Klagenfurt. At the Met, he previously starred in Jonathan Miller’s production in 2005 as Figaro, and as the Count in Richard Eyre’s 2017 production.
Performances will take place on November 16, 20, 23, 26, 30, and December 3, 7, 11, & 14. Pisaroni joins an outstanding cast including Susanna Phillips as the Countess, Nadine Sierra as Susanna, Gaëlle Arquez as Cherubino, Elizabeth Bishop as Marcellina, Adam Plachetka as the Count, and Brindley Sherratt as Dr. Bartolo. Antonello Manacorda leads the Metropolitan Opera Orchestra and Chorus.
Pisaroni’s portrayal as Figaro on Deutsche Grammophon’s recording of the opera garnered critical acclaim, and it received the 2017 ECHO Klassik award for “Best Opera Recording,” led by Yannick Nézet-Séguin with the Chamber Orchestra of Europe. For more information & purchase links, click here.
