The Met’s hit production of Bizet’s Carmen stars Anita Rachvelishvili, who made a sensational Met debut in the title role in 2010. “With her smoldering, earthy sexuality, she is ideal for the role” of the sultry gypsy (New York Times). In the final performance, José Cura sings the role of Don José, the soldier whose doomed love for Carmen destroys them both. Ekaterina Scherbachenko is the loyal Micaëla and Dwayne Croft sings the swaggering bullfighter Escamillo. Michele Mariotti conducts.
