Cranston's wrenching performance stands on its own. In context, it's a terrifying reminder of how an all-too-human, anger-filled public figure, with access to a worldwide stage, can be mistaken for a god.

Why See Metropolitan Opera - Carmen?

Classical & Opera

The price of free love is death

Sir Richard Eyre's stunning production of Bizet's Carmen returns to the Met, with Clementine Margarine resuming the title role from her 2017 debut. The world-renowned opera tells the fiery story of Carmen and Don Jose. One of the most explosively entertaining works in the repertoire, Georges Bizet's Carmen couples an enticing storyline with a heart-stopping score that'll have you on the very edge of your seat.

What is Carmen about

She might not have been the original femme fatale, but Carmen has sure carved a niche in our consciousness as one of opera's most dangerous women. Stunningly beautiful and wholly aware, her habit of taking and breaking hearts can only lead to trouble for her and her bedazzled targets.

Her short temper brings her to the attention of the kind and charismatic Don Jose, who falls head over heels in love with her. An intense tale of love found and ruthlessly taken, Carmen is an intense and passionate piece, as lust and revenge go hand in hand making for a fiery finale.
