September 28 - March 1

Anita Rachvelishvili, the sultry Carmen who made a sensational Met debut in 2010, sings the title role in Richard Eyre’s fast-moving hit production of the tragic tale. Rising tenor Yonghoon Lee is Don José, whose doomed love for Carmen destroys them both. Kate Royal is the loyal Micaëla and Teddy Tahu Rhodes sings the swaggering bullfighter Escamillo. Michele Mariotti conducts in his Met debut.
