The MET: Live in HD - CARMEN (Bizet)

Saturday, Nov 1, 9:55 am
Sunday, Nov 9, 1:00 pm
Approximate HD runtime 3:38

Richard Eyre’s mesmerizing production of Bizet’s steamy melodrama returns with mezzo-soprano Anita Rachvelishvili singing her signature role of the ill-fated gypsy temptress. Aleksandrs Antonenko plays her desperate lover, the soldier Don José, and Ildar Abdrazakov is the swaggering bullfighter, Escamillo, who comes between them. Pablo Heras-Casado conducts the irresistible score, which features one beloved and instantly recognizable melody after another.

The wonderful Stassya Pacheco returns for a pre-opera lecture prior to every Saturday live transmission, 30 minutes before the start time.  Also, Saturday operas offer the option of pre-ordering your lunch from The Lunch Box.  Pre-order lunches are made up during the opera and ready for you to enjoy during the intermission. We will also have recorded encore screenings of all performances.
 
Tickets: $23 adults; $19 seniors; $16 students with $2 off for Lincoln Theatre Members. Discounted Season Passes available!
