Great Performances at the Met

Carmen

Season 4, Episode 7 of 10

One of the most popular operas of all time, Carmen "is about sex, violence, and racism -- and its corollary: freedom," says Olivier Award-winning director Richard Eyre about his new production of Bizet's drama. "It is one of the inalienably great works of art. It's sexy, in every sense. And I think it should be shocking." Elina Garanca sings the seductive gypsy of the title for the first time at the Met, opposite Roberto Alagna as the obsessed Don Jose. Yannick Nezet-Seguin conducts.
