The Met Opera’s encore performance of Bizet’s Carmen will be shown in select cinemas on Wednesday, November 5 at 6:30 p.m. in all time zones. Please note: not all cinemas showing the live transmission will present an encore showing. Richard Eyre’s mesmerizing production of Bizet’s steamy melodrama returns with mezzo-soprano Anita Rachvelishvili singing her signature role of the ill-fated gypsy temptress. Aleksandrs Antonenko plays her desperate lover, the soldier Don José, and Ildar Abdrazakov is the swaggering bullfighter, Escamillo, who comes between them. Pablo Heras-Casado conducts the irresistible score, which features one beloved and instantly recognizable melody after another.
