Met Opera Encore: Carmen

February 10, 12:55 PM4:05 PM

$16 – $19

Acclaimed English director Carrie Cracknell brings a vital new production of Georges Bizet’s Carmen, one of opera’s most enduringly powerful works, reinvigorating the classic story with a staging that moves the action to the modern day and finds at the heart of the drama issues that could not be more relevant today: gendered violence, abusive labor structures, and the desire to break through societal boundaries. Dazzling young mezzo-soprano Aigul Akhmetshina leads a powerhouse quartet of stars in the complex and volatile title role, alongside tenor Piotr Beczała as Carmen’s troubled lover Don José, soprano Angel Blue as the loyal Micaëla, and bass-baritone Kyle Ketelsen as the swaggering Escamillo. Daniele Rustioni conducts Bizet’s heart-pounding score.

Tickets: $16 – $19. This event is eligible for the Youth Arts Access Fund.
