Georges Bizet's


Sat September 11 at 11:30am Sun September 12 at 1:00pm (Check local directory for possible extra weekday screening)

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 (and director of films such as Notes on a Scandal) 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 Garanča plays the seductive gypsy of the title in her role debut, opposite Roberto Alagna as the obsessed Don José.
