carmen_bieitoLa Cieca notes that the Gran Teatre del Liceu production of Carmen, directed by Calixto Bieito and starring Beatrice Uria-Monzon, Roberto Alagna, Marina Poplavskaya and Erwin Schrott, will be broadcast to cinemas a couple of weeks from now.  

The live relay is at the rather inconvenient time of 2:00 pm on a Wednesday, but there apparently is a theater in Manhattan showing a replay on Sunday, October 17 at 7:00 pm. Your doyenne suggests that this film event might make an attractive meet-and-discuss for the local parterriani.  Reactions, ideas and suggestion in the comments section, please, and if there seems to be sufficient interest, La Cieca will start the process of booking.

The production (with an alternate cast) is highly praised by Regie maven Opera Cake.
