Summer Met Encore: Carmen
August 23 @ 7:00 pm
$18.00 General Admission
Carmen – Bizet – (This production is from the 09/10 season. Total runtime: 3 hours)
Sir Richard Eyre’s gritty production of Bizet’s steamy melodrama returns with mezzo-soprano Elīna Garanča as the ill-fated gypsy temptress.Tenor Roberto Alagna plays her desperate lover, the soldier Don José, and Teddy Tahu Rhodes is the swaggering bullfighter, Escamillo, who comes between them. Yannick Nézet-Séguin conducts the timeless score, which features one beloved melody after another.
