The Metropolitan Opera: Carmen Overview

The Met celebrates the new year with a new production of one of operas most popular works. Acclaimed English director Carrie Cracknell makes her Met debut, reinvigorating the classic story of deadly passion with a staging that moves the action to the present day, amid a band of human traffickers. Mezzo-soprano Aigul Akhmetshina leads a powerhouse quartet of stars in the touchstone role of the irresistible femme fatale, alongside tenor Piotr Beczala as Carmens lover Don Jos, soprano Angel Blue as the devoted Micala, and bass-baritone Kyle Ketelsen as the swaggering Escamillo. Daniele Rustioni conducts Bizets heart-pounding score. Later in the season, another cast of world-class singers takes over, with mezzo-soprano Clmentine Margaine reprising her portrayal of the title role, tenor Michael Fabiano as Don Jos, soprano Ailyn Prez as Micala, bass-baritone Ryan Speedo Green as Escamillo, and Diego Matheuz making his company debut on the podium.
