The Met: Live in HD Summer Encore series presents a re-broadcast of Bizet’s Carmen, in select cinemas nationwide on Wednesday, July 19. Sir Richard Eyre’s gritty production of Bizet’s steamy melodrama returns with mezzo-soprano Elina Garanca as the ill-fated gypsy temptress. Tenor Roberto Alagna plays her desperate lover, the soldier Don José, and Teddy Tahu Rhodes is the swaggering bullfighter, Escamillo, who comes between them. Yannick Nézet-Séguin conducts the timeless score, which features one beloved melody after another.
