[masked]The Ultimate Stage Spectacle - The Met:
Live in HD on movie theater screens nationally. The broadcast of Bizet?s opera Carmen
will be presented live for only one day
on Saturday, January 16, 2010 at 1 PM ET / 10 AM PT in select movie theaters.
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 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 Garanca plays the seductive gypsy of the title, opposite Roberto Alagna as the obsessed Don Jos?.
This is a very good play... I have seen it both in flamenco settings by Antonio Gades and Bizet. Don't miss out to be one of the few to see it live in theaters amongst thousands of other in the US.
I will be going this saturday 1/16 if anyone wants to come along!!! RSVP and we'll meet at the lobby theater at 12:30pm. The link to purchase your ticket is below... In some states it has already sold out!!!!http://www.ncm.com/Fathom/Opera/MET_Carmen_Live.aspx
If you can't come saturday, an encore presentation of this performance will be exhibited in select movie theatres on Wednesday, February 3, 2010 at 6:30 PM in all time zones. Rina (member of this meetup group) is going to the encore show... if you want to join her send her an email from meetup...
