by Georges Bizet

March 30, April 2, 5 & 7, 2019

Carmen is one fiery gypsy woman…a femme fatale who lives life on her own provocative terms. The next notch on her belt is the naïve soldier Don Jose who is bewitched by her passion and gives up everything to be with her, including his sweetheart Micaela. In her true heartless fashion, Carmen becomes bored and callously drops her young lover when her path collides with the macho bullfighting Escamillo. Obsessed and alone, will Don Jose’s jealousy ignites an emotional bonfire that destroys them all.

Carmen is an archetype of literature and art set to passionate music that will burn up the stage with it’s unbridled drama and incredible music, including the “Toreador Song” and the seductive “Habanera.” Set in classic Spain, this traditional production has all of the lust, jealousy, revenge, and heart-stopping drama you’ve come to expect from Bizet’s powerful opera.

Sung in French with projected English translations.
