The Met Live in HD: Carmen

Be swept away by the sensuality of opera's most famous gypsy siren

Opera's fiery vixen, Carmen, is brought to the stage by soprano Elina Garanca in The Met Live in HD: Carmen. Award-winning director Richard Eyre has said his new production of Bizet's classic "is about sex, violence and racism - and at the corollary: freedom." Roberto Alagna sings Don Jose (the guy who's responsible for a lot of the violence, Eyre mentions), and Renee Fleming hosts. A taped encore of today's live broadcast from New York is scheduled for February 3. Noon. Various locations, including Houston Marq*E Stadium 22 plus IMAX, 7620 Katy Freeway.

Sat., Jan. 16, noon; Wed., Feb. 3, 2010
