The Metropolitan Opera Live: Carmen

Saturday 02 February 2019
Time: 17:55

Running Time: TBC


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

Don José breaks the law, goes to prison, deserts the army and loses everything to be with Carmen. But she soon tires of him and takes up instead with the bullfighter Escamillo—bass  (Alexander Vinogradov). She has ruined his life, but still Don José 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.
