A prize-winning performer and recording artist, Latvian mezzo soprano Elina Garanca and French tenor Roberto Alagna reprise their roles from 2010's Carmen. The Met's latest staging of Richard Eyre's acclaimed production is set to be conducted by Louis Langrée. Filled with passion, jealousy, drama and death, Georges Bizet's classic opera revolves around a beautiful but hot-tempered Spanish gypsy girl who seduces a young corporal named Don José. The naive young man gives up everything for her, leaving his former love, rebelling against his superiors and joining a gang of smugglers. But when Carmen tires of him and moves on to the bullfighter Escamillo, Don José is driven by betrayal and jealousy to exact violent revenge. The French composer's score includes the instantly recognizable "The Toreador Song," Carmen's habanera and more.
