Met Opera Screening: Carmen

About Met Opera Screening: Carmen

Please note, this is an encore screening

Don’t miss this revival of Sir Richard Eyre’s dynamic production. 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 the capricious gypsy 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.

Estimated running time: 3 hours 21 mins

Act I – 101 mins

Intermission – 36 mins

Act II – 64 mins

While we take every opportunity to ensure the details for Met Opera Screening: Carmen are accurate, we always advise that you contact the event organiser before setting out for the event to avoid disapointment.
