Editorial Review

NCM Fathom brings the ultimate stage spectacle - The Met: Live in HD - to movie theatre screens nationwide. The broadcast of Bizet's opera Carmen will be presented live for only one day on Saturday, January 16, 2010 at 1 PM ET / 10 AM PT in select movie theatres. One of the most popular operas of all time, Carmen "is about sex, violence, and racism-and its corollary: freedom," says Olivier Award-winning director Richard Eyre about his new production of Bizet's drama. "It is one of the inalienably great works of art. It's sexy, in every sense. And I think it should be shocking."
