The Metropolitan Opera presents Carmen

2nd Feb 2019 @ 17:45 - 21:30

£10.50 – £16

Live streamed broadcast from the New York Met. Don’t miss this revival of Sir Richard Eyre’s dynamic production.

Mezzo-soprano Clementine Margaine plays opera’s ultimate seductress, while Roberto Alagna returns to the role of Don Jose, the good hearted soldier in whom she unleashes an uncontrollable passion.

Don Jose breaks the law, goes to prison, deserts the army and loses everything to be with Carmen. But the capricious gypsy soon tires of him and takes up instead with the bullfighter Escamillo (Alexander Vinogradov). She has ruined his life, but still Don Jose adores her, with a fierceness that can only lead to catastrophe.

Composer Bizet died just three months after Carmen’s disastrous premiere, never knowing that his creation would become one of the most popular operas of all time.

Running time: 3 hours 40 minutes including interval.
