Bizet's "Carmen" is one of the most popular operas in the repertoire and one that also possesses some of the most popular melodies in classical music. On the night of Oct. 14, the Metropolitan Opera presented Bizet's work with a twist. The tenor Aleksandrs Antonenko, who was scheduled to perform Don Jose, cancelled due to illness and Brandon Jovanovich took over on short notice, even though he is currently rehearsing Shostakovich's extremely taxing work "Lady Macbeth of Mtsenk."
