James Gaffigan takes the podium to lead Mozart’s breathless and breathtaking comedy. Bass-baritone Gerald Finley plays the role of the philandering Count, opposite soprano Federica Lombardi as the dignified Countess. The wily maid Susanna is sung by soprano Aida Garifullina, and bass-baritone Christian Van Horn plays the title role of the foolhardy valet. Mezzo-soprano Sasha Cooke appears as Cherubino, the young page on the cusp of manhood.
