In a previous blog post, I raptured on about the Metropolitan Opera's Carmen, which was pretty much universally acclaimed as the highlight — at least so far — of this season’s HD simulcast series.

(FYI: The last two performances, which are screened Saturday mornings at local Hollywood and Cinemark theaters, are Thomas’ Hamlet on March 27 and Rossini’s Armida on May 1. Plan to go early, as they usually sell out early.)

This week, the Met unveiled the lineup for its 2010-2011 Live in HD Season. And thanks to the miracle of cut and paste, we present it to you now:
