Carmen (#903H) Duration: 2:56:46 SRND51 TVPG

Richard Eyre's mesmerizing production of Bizet's steamy melodrama returns with mezzo-soprano Anita Rachvelishvili singing her signature role of the ill-fated gypsy temptress. Aleksandrs Antonenko plays her desperate lover, the soldier Don Jose, and Ildar Abdrazakov is the swaggering bullfighter Escamillo, who comes between them. Pablo Heras-Casado conducts the irresistible score, which features one beloved and instantly recognizable melody after another.

Upcoming Broadcasts:

Rodelinda (#604H) Duration: 3:24:32 SRND51 TVPG

Sensational in the 2004 Met premiere of Stephen Wadsworth's much-heralded production, Renee Fleming reprises the title role, joined by Stephanie Blythe and countertenor Andreas Scholl. Baroque specialist Harry Bicket conducts.

Upcoming Broadcasts:

Les Contes d'Hoffmann (#906H) Duration: 2:56:46 SRND51 TVPG

Magnetic tenor Vittorio Grigolo takes on the tortured poet and unwitting adventurer of the title of Offenbach's operatic masterpiece, in the Met's wild, kaleidoscopic production. Hibla Gerzmava, Erin Morley and Christine Rice sing the three heroines - each an idealized embodiment of some aspect of Hoffmann's desire. Thomas Hampson portrays the shadowy Four Villains, and Yves Abel conducts the sparkling score in a Bartlett Sher production.

Upcoming Broadcasts:

IL Barbiere di Siviglia (#904H) Duration: 2:54:16 SRND51 TVPG

The Met's effervescent production of Rossini's classic comedy - featuring some of the most instantly recognizable melodies in opera - stars Isabel Leonard as the feisty Rosina, Lawrence Brownlee as her conspiring flame and Christopher Maltman as the endlessly resourceful and charming barber himself. Michele Mariotti conducts the vivid and tuneful score.

Upcoming Broadcasts:

Die Meistersinger Von Nurnberg (#905H) Duration: 4:56:46 SRND51 TVPG

James Levine returns to one of his signature Wagner works conducting this epic comedy-back at the Met for the first time in eight years-about a group of Renaissance "master singers" whose song contest unites a city. Johan Reuter, Johan Botha, and Annette Dasch lead the superb international cast in this charming and magisterial celebration of the power of music and art.
