One of the greatest roles written for mezzo-soprano, the title character of Bizet’s Carmen combines richly sensual singing with dramatic conviction and some of the most popular melodies in opera. Just a month after her celebrated Met debut, French mezzo-soprano Clémentine Margaine stars in this broadcast as the alluring gypsy, opposite tenor Roberto Aronica as Don José, the desperate solider who loses everything in pursuit of Carmen’s love. Maria Agresta is the kind yet determined Micaëla, and Kyle Ketelsen brings masculine swagger and a dark baritone as the bullfighter Escamillo. Maestro Asher Fisch is on the podium for this hot-blooded tale of passion, betrayal, and revenge.
