The Bardavon continues the 2014/15 season of The Met: Live in HD on Saturday, November 1 at 1 p.m. at the Bardavon with Bizet’s Carmen. Richard Eyre’s production of Bizet’s melodrama returns with mezzo-soprano Anita Rachvelishvili singing in the role of the ill-fated Gypsy temptress. Aleksandrs Antonenko plays her desperate lover, the soldier Don José, and Ildar Abdrazakov is the swaggering bullfighter Escamillo, who comes between them. Leslie Gerber leads a pre-show talk at 12:30 p.m.
