Michael Volle in Mozart: Le Nozze di Figaro

Mozart: Le Nozze di Figaro

2007 NR

Franz Welser-Most conducts the chorus and orchestra of the Zurich Opera House in this fresh take on Mozart's classic opera buffa featuring Michael Volle as the Count, Malin Hartelius as the Countess and Martina Janková as the comely Susanna. Judith Schmid steps into a pair of trousers to play the "pants role" of Cherubino, the Count's boyish page who gets pulled into a plot -- and women's clothing -- to thwart his master.
