The Merola Opera Program and the San Francisco Public Library present Merola Goes to the Movie, featuring free screenings of operas on film.
Join us on Sunday, January 29th, 1 pm, for a free film screening of Bizet's Carmen, a 2006 Royal Opera House production featuring Anna Caterina Antonacci, Jonas Kaufmann, and Ildebrando D'Arcangelo.
This screening takes place at the San Francisco Public Library - Main Branch (100 Larkin Street) in the Koret Auditorium. Admission is free.
Love, obsession, bullfights, cigarette girls, and smugglers. The tragic story of the unforgettable Carmen plays out with passionate intensity in a vibrant production that makes Bizet’s familiar score seem fresh and new.
Before the screening, a Merola representative will give a short talk about the opera. Guests are also welcome to enter a free drawing to win Merola Opera Program prizes.
Doors for seating open at 12:30 pm. All seating is first come and not reserved in advance. Early arrival is suggested for best seats.
