Richard Eyre’s stunning production of Bizet’s masterpiece was the talk of the town when it was unveiled on New Year’s Eve 2009. Remounted for the 2018-19 season, mezzo-soprano Clémentine Margaine leads the cast as ultimate seductress Carmen—a gypsy woman desired by every man but determined to remain true to herself. Roberto Alagna is Don José, the soldier who falls under her spell and sacrifices everything for her love, only to be cast aside when the toreador Escamillo (Alexander Vinogradov) piques Carmen’s interest. With dances created by star choreographer Christopher Wheeldon and conducted by maestro Louis Langrée, this production brings every aspect of Bizet’s tale to thrilling life, from its lighthearted beginning to its inevitably tragic climax.
