Carmen by Georges Bizet in Met Live in HD Series

The mezzosoprano Clementine Margaine made her Met debut in 2017 in the role of the seductress Carmen.

This is the second time she takes the role, in the revival of the 2009 production, directed by the eminent British director Sir Richard Eyre—proof of the young French singer’s promise. Margaine will be joined on the stage by the renowned tenor Roberto Alagna and his wife, the soprano Aleksandra Kurzak, in the role of Micaela.

Despite the scandal surrounding Carmen’s premiere in 1875 at the Opéra-Comique in Paris, the opera became very popular after the early death of its composer, Georges Bizet, and the character of the passionate, frееdom-loving Carmen became a cultural phenomenon.

Sir Richard Eyre’s staging transfers the audience in the years of the Spanish Civil War and places its focus on the disintegrating liaison between Carmen and Don José, who is madly in love with her. The spectacular production will be conducted by French conductor Louis Langree, who is Cincinnati Symphony Orchestra’s musical director.

DATE/TIME: February 2, 7:55 PM
LOCATION: Cinema City, Mall of Sofia, 101 Alexander Stamboliiski Blvd.
