From the Royal Opera House in London, Metro Cinema presents big screen encores of the season's best live productions. Spanish heat and gypsy passion arrive on the Royal Opera stage with this darkly passionate and sumptiously exotic reading of one of the world's favourite operas. Don Jose, a naive soldier, is seduced by the wiles of the fiery gypsy Carmen. He abandons his childhood sweetheart and deserts from his military duties, only to lose Carmen's love to the glamourous toreador Escamillo.
Opera in three acts with one interval. Co-presented by Edmonton Opera and in conjunction with Media Events International Group. Special admission in effect: $17 adults, $14 students and seniors. No Metro passes.
