The Met Live in HD: Carmen
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.
