Here’s what host Alexa Petrenko has to say about this week’s episode:

“The extraordinary celebrity of George Bizet  (born Oct 25, 1838) as an opera composer is the fruit of just one work, Carmen.  ‘As a musician, I tell you,’ he said, ‘that if we were to suppress adultery, fanaticism, crime, evil, and the supernatural, there would no longer be the means of writing one note.’  This week, Jessye Norman sings the role of the free-spirited gypsy, Neil Shicoff is her doomed lover, and Seiji Ozawa conducts the Orchestre National de France in a historic 1969 recording.”

“Sunday Night at the Opera” airs Sunday nights at 9 PM with host Alexa Petrenko.
