Week 29 of the Metropolitan Opera's Nightly Met Streams series is dedicated to Wolfgang Amadeus Mozart. The free presentations range from comedy to drama, from grand realistic sets to colorful, puppet-filled dreamscapes.

Among the roster are two separate presentations of Le Nozze di Figaro: Richard Eyre's 2014 production and an all-star 1998 performance featuring Renée Fleming, Cecilia Bartoli, and Bryn Terfel. (Susanne Mentzer appears in both, as Marcellina and Cherubino, respectively.)
