SIR Richard Eyre’s dynamic production of ‘Carmen’ will be broadcast from New York’s Met Opera to Lyme Regis in February.
Mezzo-soprano Clémentine Margaine plays opera’s ultimate seductress and Roberto Alagna returns to the role of Don José, the good-hearted soldier in whom she unleashes an uncontrollable passion.
Don José breaks the law, goes to prison, deserts the army and loses everything to be with Carmen. But the capricious gypsy soon tires of him and takes up instead with the bullfighter Escamillo – bass Alexander Vinogradov.
The Met Opera screening will be held on Monday, February 4 at the Marine Theatre in Lyme Regis, with the bar opening at 4.55pm for a 5.55pm start.
Tickets cost £15 for adults or £5 for under 18s, with 10% off for Theatre Friends. To book, call 01297 442138 or visit www.marinetheatre.com
