Saturday at 1 pm, Bizet's riveting drama of love and jealousy, filled with famously alluring melodies and captivating dances, is heard in a performance by Los Angeles Opera. Irish mezzo-soprano Patricia Bardon plays the title role and American tenor Brandon Jovanovich is Don José. Plácido Domingo conducts.

When LA Opera revived this production from Teatro Real in Madrid it advised patrons: "parental discretion advised." Tune in and perhaps find out why.
