Join us for another entertaining and enriching evening watching Bizet's Carmen opera, rebroadcast live in HD from the NY Metropolitan Opera House on Saturday, 21 September.

Carmen is an opera by Georges Bizet based on an 1845 novella by French dramatist Prosper Mérimée. The title character, a wild Spanish gypsy, is unscrupulous in matters of the law and of the heart. ... He flirts with Carmen, who rebuffs him because she is waiting for José to be released from jail.
